ComGrafix Inc. today announced that it has made RagTime available for free, for private non-commercial use.
RagTime, developed by RagTime GmbH, is a suite of business publishing applications that combine word processing, spreadsheet, pictures, drawing, charting and slideshows. The software started life on the Mac and is now available for both Mac OS and Windows. The new package is being distributed as RagTime Solo and can be downloaded online.
The company noted that RagTime Solo's principal difference to its commercial counterpart is a dialog box that appears when first booting the program. The window asks the user to acknowledge that RagTime Solo is to be used for non-commercial purposes only.
According to ComGrafix, features in RagTime Solo include:
RagTime Solo's system requirements call for Mac OS 8.6 or higher, 64MB RAM, 75MB available hard disk space. The software is not yet native to Mac OS X, but it does run in Classic.
