    Great stuff. Thanx for sharing David. So do you read this as them having removed the previous requirement that quizzes be made public when used commercially? I dont see anything specific to that in the readme files or web site?

    Good point. That requirement does seem to have been removed, doesn't it? The only real mention I can find is on the homepage: "Hot Potatoes is freeware, and you may use it for any purpose or project you like. It is not open-source.". You could always simply email the authors to check.

    They really should title it "Hot Potatoes 6" is now free.

    Version 7 won't be when they've written it.
