Post I thought the beta was free?
At the Arduino download page (heh heh, I found it first! :twisted: ) it says "Free 120-day beta!" And then below that says "ROBOTC for Arduino is available for FREE during our BETA period." Are you saying that the beta will last exactly 120-days? Or will the software expire after 120-days even if the beta isn't over?

EDIT: Okay, so tfriez just posted a link to the page, but I did find it before he posted! (Wednesday night, to be specific)

The Software will last 120 days, which is the anticipated period of the BETA. The licensing system only lets us do a trial for X number of days.

If the BETA goes shorter, you'll still get at least 120 days. If it goes longer, we'll extend it :)

Okay, I thought it might be something like that. Thanks.
