This software is freeware, so why should it be released as open source?

I think it's a lot of work of the developers and it's pretty nice to release this software for free! :lol::D:lol::D

If a software is OpenSource, you can also download the Source Code and modify it if you want.

ok!

Can I use a freeware Software for no personal use?

This is a great program. Too bad its not GPL'd. Look what happened to KDE just because they waited to long to GPL it. If only they would have GPL'd it earlier...and we wouldn't have two linux desktops competing. Forking is a difficult thing.
