Re:come on, don't be so hostile!

I agree with this.

I don't use Xara, but they have a business to run. If they can't make money from Xara anymore, then they can no longer pay developers to work on the opensource code.

Thats a fact of life.

If Xara was ported to windows<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/and/ that hit their revenue then not only would Xara's shareholders lose out, the community would lose the full-time paid developers and corporate support.

They are simply warning the community of this (perhaps in a less than tactful manner). This doesn't make them evil. If you want to use a fully free, entirely community based vector drawing program then you have alternatives.

They're not trying to stop anyone, just discourage them.
