RE: [ossig] Other open source projects



Hi all,

 

Java is a good development tool that allows web and non web version of an application. Java software being free or open source license, does it really affects the spirit of being free or open?

 

Any how, do you mean to say the licensing is not correctly done or is it done in a manner that contradicts the ability to be free/open?

Um ... i dunno wat to say :)

There are thousands and thousands of Java software released under various types of free and open source licences, are you saying that they are all wrongly done so?

Java is non-free. :)

If you want to develop free/open source applications, please use a free
(as in freedom) language and framework such as python.
