Wow! Kermit. I forgot about that. I used to use kermit back in the '80s to temporarily link unix and dos/windows machines together for fetching files.

Looks like no more freebies...

The lite version can be used for commercial development, but is limited to 1 schematic sheet and two sided boards and a board size about the size of a pack of cigarettes. The "Hobbiest" version has fewer constrants of boards, but can't be used for commercial products.

At ... anguage=en they state:
The EAGLE Light Edition can be used for free!

The Freeware version of EAGLE Light adds these limitations:

- Support is only available via email or through our forum (no fax or phone support).
- Use is limited to non-profit applications or evaluation purposes.

What does “non-profit” mean?

The definition of non-profit is fairly simple and straightforward:

- If you earn (or save) money by using the Freeware version of EAGLE Light, you have to register it.
