No. That's not right. The binary is free, any changes to the source are
fed back to the project and the only charges made are for media and
printed (or any other) support given by them. Nothing to do with theft,
making something private/proprietary or anything like that.

Do you seriously think for a moment that I would even agree to looking
at it if for I thought that is what they are after *or* that they didn't
understand the GPL and it's implications?


Free your mind to a time where a company does not have control
Free your mind to a choice of applications which you can control
Free your mind from the closed world of those who seek total power
Free your mind to the wonderful world of free software
