The freeware version has the following limitations
* no commercial use allowed
* lacks all features introduced in IDA Pro >5.0 (5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 6.0)
* lacks support for many processors, file format, debugging etc..
Setup runs without any error. Disassembling seems to work. IDA Free doesn't have 64-bit support so I couldn't try dissassembling something from the system (I had planned to try /bin/true :)), but it seems elf dissasembling works. Also tried dissassembling raw binary. No problems whatsoever.
What does not
Haven't tested thoroughly. For now everything seems to work.
What was not tested
Advanced features. PE dissassembling.
