Niceness in software

I just was cleaning up my Applications folder and opened up Yojimbo, which I had stopped using once I realized I had DEVONthink Personal. It alerted me to the fact that my trial time had expired and had the usual options – buy a license, enter license information or quit.

What caught my eye, though, is that it also offered the option to export the data it had – so that if I needed to, I could quit and still have access to the data through another software package… rather than holding my data hostage.

So, while I don’t need Yojimbo, I’ll certainly keep Bare Bones Software towards the top of the list for other packages I might want.
