Nothing is for Free on the Web

It has been fascinating to watch how the Internet has changed over the past 15 years. One area that has caught my eye recently is the growing amount of free software and Web-based tools found online. But here is the bottom line, nothing is for free! There is a catch to all “free” downloads. What is important is that you understand the catch. For example, free CMS tools such as Magento, WordPress and Joomla come at a price. It ranges from the plugins needed to avoid spam to high priced developers needed to make the site’s code work for you. So the next time you download something for free, ask the question, “what am I really paying for?”
