Will the online version be free someday?

Did you know that the Oxford English Dictionary is still printed?

* 20-volume print edition: $995
* Compact edition (with magnifying glass): $399
* CD-ROM edition: $295
* Annual subscription for online version: $295
* Monthly access to online version: $29.95

You have to admit, no online dictionary can touch the details that come with each entry in the Oxford dictionary. Not yet.
