Re:Crossover Office is Open Source? Really?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on April 15, 2002 10:46 PM
Exactly. Lindows/Codeweavers started when Wine had an X11 license.. Codeweavers convinced the WINE guys to change the tree to GPL so nobody would 'steal the code'.

From another perspective, it looks like Lindows.com paid Codeweavers to create Crossover, which Codeweavers is now selling as their own...

Either you satisfy the little programmer nut by making the code GPL, or you satisfy the businesses by making the code X11.. One way or another someone is 'stealing' code.
