      That hardly counts as crippleware; if you want more data files, either buy them from the author or take a few moments to search online.

      XEphem is indeed very powerful; it's also flexible. I can only imagine how large the tarball would grow if it included complete data for every possible interest and use one could throw at it.

      Crippleware
      The included data files are very limited. The program seems to be powerfull, but without the full data files it's usefullness is limited.
