    Question Serif freebies

    Not so sure it's software for 'Education', but ...

    Does anyone use the Serif free software in school?
    (mainly: WebPlus, PagePlus, MoviePlus etc)

    Is it any good?
    Nag screens?
    Very limited?

    Thought I might include it on the kids PCs but dont want to install it all if its rubbish.

    We do
    The tech department use it all the time and have no complaints. We do get a license screen at the beginning but you can just click past it.
