Well, that doesn't surprise me at all.


SPIN! is "gift" ware, which means that anybody who is using is is supposed
to send a gift (sooner or later). However the distribution is not restricted
in any way.

The outcome: there is not a SINGLE registered user outside the German
countries, despite the fact that there has been an English translation of
the docs for nearly one year now.

I don't think that the next release of SPIN! will be a free unrestricted
download, and if it is, it will likely come with no (updated) English

Sorry. You get what you pay for.
