- Downvoted a comment on Local by FlywheelThe claim that _Local by FlyWheel_ is available for free is **false** and **misleading.** I downloaded their **half a GB sized software**, most of which is just a custom Virtual Box VM. Not only did it stutter and failed to install properly on my Window 7 64 bit computer system, but when launched, it just redirected to their website, where I was made to jump through various hoops which ultimately ended up at.... their **payment gateway!** I backed away and tried to hunt for _the free option to work with WP on my own computer_ i.e. not hosted somewhere - **couldn't find any,** neither on their website nor in their knowledge-base. Now I'm not claiming that I made an exhaustive search. But that is exactly my point - the duplicitousness of this company in dangling the carrot of _free_ to lure people then harvesting their e-mails and what-not. And making the free product so difficult to find that technically they can't be called liars but it'd be out of reach of all but the doggedest pursuers. **Recommendation: Avoid like the plague.** Instead go for Instant WP - a totally honest offering. **Disclaimer: I have not been compensated in any way or manner by Instant WP for this review.** I am just a long time, satisfied user.
