What are the limited data feed capabilities and why was it limited?

As far as I know, there's only one "Special Edition", and that's distributed by AMP and brokers clearing through AMP. Optimus ( @mattz ) also offers this version.

MultiCharts .NET Special Edition differs from the regular MultiCharts .NET edition with the data feed capabilities: with MultiCharts .NET Special Edition you only have a few data feeds to choose from. Other than that, there are no differences.

Do note however that the "Special Edition" is the .NET version; EasyLanguage/PowerLanguage scripts cannot be coded nor run in it. You'll need to program your indicators and strategies in C# or Visual Basic with MultiCharts .NET Special Edition.

This begs the questions: Why limited? What are the data feeds it has access to? What do these limited data feeds cover? It's hard to believe no one asked before me so I am asking now since someone else has got to want to know. Also if other brokers are marketing a MultiCharts FREE edition what are the differences between them. Please anyone who knows please chime in. In the meantime I guess I will take the initiative and start my inquiry.
