Only old version (4.0) of PureBasic is provided as free. File is compressed in rarely used format (lzx).
It seem that it isn't really free.

The program is not free, but there is a free demo available. A single user license costs € 79, which is a fair price, as you can download the versions for all supported platforms (Amiga, Linux Windows and MacOS X). And, once paid, all future upgrades are free.
