No problems. I'm used to get my heart hurt on the Internet twice a day ;-)

But I *am* pragmatic (I explicitly said that for me it's OK to recommend
a piece of non-free software -- please read my answer again!)

Ah, now we're talking :-)

This is what I was missing in your original post. Just "is the best" was
too little for me. Now if you could name just one feature that you miss
most in the free alternatives, that would be awesome.

I understood that this is all from your perspective. What else can you
offer? That's the same for us all, nothing bad about it.

Sarcasm was intended. But if it came across as tasteless, I'm genuinely
sorry about that.

For sure. And I did write that I acknowledge your good intentions: I sure
meant it.

I hope that is clear now. I *do* understand, but I was missing some
*constructive* criticism (because I do care deeply about Free).
