Do you ever feel guilty for using software that companies willingly offer for free?


I was looking for PowerPoint to Video conversion software online today and found one that was $49.95 and another service that is free. It's really hard for me NOT to pay for software I know is powerful and has taken so much time to develop. It befuddles me that so much is free. Do you ever feel the same as I do even though you know companies advertise this way and that they have advanced versions that they sell? It just seems very uncomfortable to me

    I want to be kind, but I find the "why should I pay when I can get it for free" attitude disturbing. That's not to say that yesterday I didn't use free software, I did because it was offered, but I would have felt much better paying at least a little
