    TeXaide no longer available?

    If you are looking for Texaide you will find that Design Science no longer have it as a free download, they now redirect you to the trial version of MathType (which is excellent but will require $$'s for use after the first 30 days).

    I presume that means that if you find it elsewhere on the web it is no longer a legal download.

    Is there any other sources that will allow us to practice using LaTex and learn it without investing a bunch of $$.

    I don't mind spending the $ but I really don't like spending $ on something that is very difficult to use.

    I don't know of any stand alone programs, but I have a feeling a free one exists. You can however practice all the Latex you want on MHF or a site like Texify

    There are a number of online LaTeX utilities other than Texify for example this. Even better is the iGoogle widget from Sitmo, see the attachment (by the by - you just got to love the energy from spam headline):

    I don't know what Kriz said to get his post deleted, but suddenly paying for something that used to be free (albeit a bit different application) just because the owner got greedy is a bit absurd.

    Actually this is very normal and makes sense to me. Many companies don't have the advertising resources to charge for their product right away, so they release beta versions or initial versions with the intention of charging for it later. I know it feels like you are being cheated because you owned something for free at first, but I don't blame anyone for trying to make money for a good product. If the price was very unreasonable then I under the frustration even more.
