Not exactly. Look...when you're using freeware to compete with OTS
applications then you have to keep up with appearances. One of the apps
I wrote was used by our Sales team to show to customers. These same
customers are used to seeing flashy apps being shown to them all the
time, and we are basically competing against other companies using
these programs.

Anyone who has written apps like this understand what a difference that
first appearances make. You can take the exact same program, give it a
flashier wrapper, and customers will automatically think it offers that
much more. Customers usually only test drive these things long enough
to get a feel for it, not long enough to understand what all it will
do.

Therefore you can get a competitive edge using something that sets it
apart appearance-wise. It has nothing to do with being hollow inside.
