It's a 30 day evaluation period, I don't consider that shareware. It should be pointed out that in actuality you eventually have to pay money for it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 16:06, November 9, 2007

That doesn't violate the definition of shareware. Jerazol 16:48, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
Yes, shareware means "try before you buy"; a requirement to purchase the software after an initial trial period is usually included in the EULA. If it didn't require you to purchase the software, then it would be freeware. — EagleOne\Talk 18:24, 9 November 2007 (UTC)
What I think the OP is getting at, is that this kind of software is more specifically demoware. Shareware is a broader definition, that does not imply feature restrictions, although that is common. — Northgrove 08:25, 4 November 2008 (UTC)
