This app has had a long, twisted road to availability, but has finally made it to the Windows Store:

Hoping it will work well, since I fret about Freehand w/ every OS update (and get sad everytime I tell someone, oh yeah, I fixed that and it was easy in Freehand, here’s how you do the same in Inkscape/AI/Corel/…).

artcam.com goes to the main artcam page. Under products, it lists the free, standard and premium.

The best I could see is that the free is designed for beginners and hobbyists. I did find a matrix comparing the features of the various versions, but, of course, I can’t find that today.

Added it to the wiki on both the free and commercial software pages — if anyone has anything to add, I’d be glad to.
