It is really quite insulting and irritating the excessive length of the nag delay you put on v11 trial. It makes it very difficult to evaluate it in any realistic way. You have a time bomb in it. Surely that is sufficient.

I am a long time customer. I ordered the new version without evaluating it because I could not put up with that mother-may-I crap, but it left a very bad taste in my mouth.

The delay is not new; it has been there on every eval version for at least
the past 10 years. Its primary purpose is to remind people of the time
remaining in their trial. Prior to adding the delay we had a lot of
complaints from people who reached the end of their trial without realizing
it, and then were unable to start the app.

Note that the delay only occurs when starting Take Command (which is
normally only done infrequently, as there's no point in continually starting
& exiting TCMD). There is no delay when starting TCC.
