Disambiguation link notification for May 19[edit]

Hi. Thank you for your recent edits. Wikipedia appreciates your help. We noticed though that when you edited Webconverger, you added a link pointing to the disambiguation page Git (check to confirm | fix with Dab solver). Such links are almost always unintended, since a disambiguation page is merely a list of "Did you mean..." article titles. Read the FAQ • Join us at the DPL WikiProject.

Article Kiosk software[edit]

I'm okay with the edit you did (except for the accusation of the link being spammy). Those 8 years seem a long time ago.

I'd suggest to review that article again (especially all referals and see also links) and make it really spam free. I just took a look at one of the software which is linked as being free. Third link on the official website of that kiosk software says "pricing". Any reason why you didn't remove that link? BroncoPfefferminz (talk) 13:47, 13 December 2013 (UTC)

Maybe you should read http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html Free software != Free of cost necessarily Hendry (talk) 16:33, 14 December 2013 (UTC)

First: If you list a product as "free" a normal user will always see that "free" as being free of cost. Second: Could you please explain why this product is listed at all? Does the linked article contribute any additional information to understand what "kiosk software" stands for? Does it solely represent "kiosk software"? Why are others missing or why have other kiosk software products been removed? After we have agreed upon the fact that this software is not free of cost - and thus commercial interests cannot be denied - to accuse the other links as being spammy seems to have double standards.

1) I agree there may be some confusion. Nonetheless the basic product of Webconverger is indeed free of cost, thousand of people browse the Web this way without payment using this Opensource "free software". http://webconverger.com/screenshots/#webconverger-is-usable-unconfigured 2) It's listed since it has a Wikipedia page of its own. Solely? No, there is 2 other kiosk products listed in See Also. Your PDF is suspect. It's not a Wikipedia page. It's not even a Web page. It's 8 years old. What are your motives?
