Subject:XV is NOT shareware if... From:Steve Fouts <sfouts -at- ELLISON -dot- SC -dot- TI -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 16 Jun 1994 09:02:36 CDT
LaVonna sayeth unto the list:
|} xv, the screen capture and graphics editor for X windows,
|} is shareware. According to one of my Unix programmers, you
|} can probably find it at ftp.x.org, the x consortium's main
|} ftp site. Otherwise use Archie to find it.
Sorry LaVonna, but xv, for the purposes being discussed on this list,
is most definitely NOT shareware.
From John Bradley's License info:
XV is shareware for PERSONAL USE only...
Commercial, government, and institutional users MUST register
their copies of XV...
The emphasis is John's, not mine. The price is an exceedingly reasonable
$25 per copy. Our documentation department negotiated a reasonable site
license with John, who is a really nice guy, and well deserving of any
and all licensing fees.
