First, I don't believe that there are downloads from unix.com (assuming you meant this site - www.unix.com).

Second, most software will let you know if it's free or not. If it cost $$$ they don't let you download before paying, providing a credit card, signing away your first born...

If it is freeware or shareware, it will be mentioned in the documentation or information before you can download.

Please post back with corrections if you need more info.

Well, this is a little odd. First, I think that the OP just started from this thread and followed the link posted to SCO's Merge.

Incredibly enough, if you click on the above link, and then click on "download" and follow the right path, it looks like you can down load Merge. You need to fill out a "profile" which contains enough info that they could bill you. I didn't comepletely follow though, but I didn't see any price for this "product".

If you click on "buy", you get a list of products for sale with prices. But no mention of "Merge" was there.

It's a good thing you said "most".

I went further into the link (false name of course!).

This is the begining of the license agreement:

IMPORTANT, READ CAREFULLY ALL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS SOFTWARE LICENSE AGREEMENT ("LICENSE") WHICH IS INCLUDED WITH THE PRODUCT OR WHICH APPEARS AS PART OF INSTALLATION OF THE SOFTWARE. BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT AND UNDERSTAND IT, AND YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY ITS TERMS AND CONDITIONS. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS OF THIS LICENSE AGREEMENT, DO NOT USE THE SOFTWARE IN ANY MANNER AND IMMEDIATELY RENDER IT UNUSEABLE; AND IN THE CASE OF PACKAGED PRODUCT, RETURN THE MEDIA PACKAGE AND THE ACCOMPANYING ITEMS (INCLUDING WRITTEN MATERIALS AND BINDERS OR OTHER CONTAINERS) TO THE PLACE YOU OBTAINED THEM.


There may be provided with the Product free software which is governed by the GNU Public License or the Artistic License which the software owner requires to be read and accepted before using.


YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT THIS FREE SOFTWARE IS NOT PART OF THE PRODUCT AND CALDERA SYSTEMS MAKES NO WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WITH RESPECT TO SUCH FREE SOFTWARE.

So, it's free but you still need to insure you read the agreement in full to insure there is no hidden charges and make sure you follow any public license agreements.

(and adding the word "most" is just one of those things you learn in business...never commit fully to anything or you'll be blamed by some management puke if something goes wrong)
