[REBOL] Re: It's NOT Free.. (was) Re: Re: The future of Rebol - achieving critic

From: ingo:2b1 at: 22-May-2001 13:54

Hi Carl, there are of course some things in the world, that aren't free, quietly changing the license isn't, it costs trust! I still remember Rebols www front page: "Rebol/Core, free now, free forever", and some such statements. Of course you got the right to change it, but, see above. And it's even worse because it's done silently, if you remembered the platforms page and just downloaded what you needed, or upgraded through Rebol, you'll never have seen it (like me). There have always been some issues regarding what you said, and what was in the license, but I was bound to believe you, that you were just doing more important things than thinking about licensing. I'm not so sure any more. Well, the least you should have done would have been to announce it on these forums, I thought they were there to build community, but this works only with trust. Yours truly, Ingo Hohmann
