Re: wrong-headed replacement of proprietary apps

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 172.31.11.193] on August 12, 2008 12:47 AM
because we can! Why is it valid to replace one proprietary app like Office and photoshop but not skype, vmware or google earth? Why should we draw the line? Why should a developer that is interested in writing their own geospatial apps not be encouraged by the freedom to do so? You're reasoning seems to be make free those big apps that cost money, but the ones that are already free (as in beer) we don't need to worry about? I disagree completely.
