I used LMI as a backup for whenever I have the "Connection Gracefully Closed" problem with TightVNC, but have used it extensively for years and years. It's too bad the free service is gone, but I understand businesses need to make money.
I still think they could have handled this better (as seen from the rage on their forums).
a) continue the service but heavily limit it (3 computers max, no color etc)
c) provide a longer grace period before transfering...
