No, I'm not. I'm judging them only by that how they work.darkblood wrote:I think you're judging them also by which has most market share.
Example: when I searched software to run windows games/apps on linux I found few (some free and some on shareware license) and tried all of them and only that shareware programs could run every windows program i tried.
You're right but we won't win this battle. Just if we look at windows as it is sold (without any additions, modifications etc) we must say it acts like virus, trojan, spyware, adware and who knows what else more at the same time...darkblood wrote:why does the developer choose what's safe for me?
Yes and i respect yours but you must remember there always were people who take advantage of others and take codes made by others (even if it's not open source) and develop on it own programs and then sell them (more advanced stolen code - higher price), it's illegal but it's truth. Thats the reason why not many software developers give their codes and they also want have benefits from theirs work.darkblood wrote:you have your opinion, i have mine and both should be respected. But everyone would benefit much more from a free-as-in-freedom program than a proprietary one.
I think we should end that conversation here (if you want to we may continue on PW) and leave that topic for questions about using OSPlayer.
