Could you guys please get your collective heads out of your arses? *So what* if it's not free software? It appears to be an extremely cool piece of software which is available in a Linux version. Hence, it belongs on The mission statement I find in "About" says nothing about being lomited to free (as in whatever) software.

What Linux needs in order to gain (even more) traction, are good applications. This includes closed-source, non-free, commercial applications. Shouting " but it's not free", "let's create an open-source clone" and some of the other remarks in the forum is not a good way to encourage developers (again - including commercial developers) to embrace Linux.
