Boardmaker Offering 30 Day Free Trial
Mayer-Johnson is finally doing what it has never done, offering a free 30 day trial of Boardmaker (v. 5.3+) for Windows. You must download it on a computer which has nothing from the Boardmaker family on it. Now, Mayer-Johnson, you really want to convince us of your dedication and commitment to individuals with special needs (and staying on top of other companies), offer free symbol updates!
I assume this change (and I could be wrong) is due to pressure of the free 30-day trial of Overboard Software from Gus Communication.
You know it is hard to avoid noticing the screenshot similarities, I wonder if Mayer-Johnson has some patent issue they play to come out with? Gosh, even the names, "Boardmaker" and "Overboard". Than again, if competition will cut prices, I'm all for it. Why can't we all just get along?
