Re:Crossover Office is Open Source? Really?

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on June 21, 2002 06:58 AM
Not true.

Most of codeweavers is Open Source wine. Out of the remaining, non-free part, most of it was done by Codeweavers, not Lindows. Lindows did make a significant contribution, but that's far from "paying codeweavers for making the product".

There is another difference: Codeweavers is not doing anything illegal. The issue here is that Lindows is breaking the GPL.

Finally, how is the GPL like stealing code??

Return to FSF asks Lindows, "Where's the source?"
