Their use of the phrase "Payed-for

Their use of the phrase "Payed-for version" and "Open source version" I don't think is helpful. The reverse would be "Closed source version" and "Not payed-for version". "Closed source" isn't the entire issue (this is 'Free Software' Daily), also "Not payed-for version" isn't entirely true. As the saying goes, Free as in ... you know how it goes. :)
