SmartFTP has been a very popular free FTP program for a very long time, but lately, it has taken a new turn, now days if you try to use FTP, you will get the following message:
Note to free users

We would like to thank you for using SmartFTP and hope to welcome you as a customer in the future.

I believe that this will be a big hit for smartftp, because im pretty sure that a lot of people will refuse to pay. If they needed money that bad, then they should have just put ads in the program or something in my opinion.
