it usually adopts an EULA similar to MS Office or IBM Symphony).
So it is, and that's nothing we can accept on the repository.
What I am reading in this thread is that "freeware" being referred to as
software which is released as "GNU GPL compatible" software or, what
I know as F/OSS (free/open source software). Is this correct?
The reason I ask is that the term "freeware" in the US English
vernacular refers to software which may legally be used for no (or
optional) fees. In other words, we use "freeware" to describe
no-charge, commercial (closed source) software and F/OSS into one, big
salad. Unfortunate but, there you have it.
thanks, in advance,
