Free OS mapping. Ha

I am led to believe that the "free" OS mapping that we are eagerly waiting for is not going to happen for us walkers.
The freebies are for companies  that use 1:10,000 scale maps for the likes of house searches, boundary issues and road planning etc.
The maps we use ie 1:25,000 and 1:50,000 are not going to be included.
Isn't that just typical.
We will find out for sure on April 1st.
Has anybody heard anything different?

If this is true, how appropriate: April 1st.

If it wasn't so sad it would be funny.

Alan, You know, i was so hissed off that i never even gave the date a second glance.
I thought it was too good to be true, something useful and free.
I hope i am wrong and we do get it.

Everything I've heard/read suggestes it'll be the other way round, free 50k and 25k whilst mastermap and 10k will remain commercial products
