So very true. As the OpenOffice folks have discovered, you actually 
often need to charge for something for people to use it - especially 
companies. They frequently get questions like "so... how do I buy this, 
anyway?" with people just refusing to take "just download it" for an 
answer. "But then how do I prove I've bought it?".

So... there's a lot to be said for a small box with a CD in it and a 
"getting started guide".
