- Subject: Distribution of cygwin (free and commercial)
I have read the "FAQ suggestion", and I wanted to open a new thread about
the possible distribution of cygwin. (I cannot access the old thread)
Before I start, I want you to check what happened to Eclipse, KDE, Gnome,
7-zip and so on. Really many, many people are using the software because it
is freely available and distributable!
If you are afraid of commercial distributions, restrict a commercial
distribution in the license.
Anyway I think it should be technically possible to give cygwin some start
parameters there you could easily switch between different locations. (e.g.
a parameter with a different registry-root or some parameters with the
needed mount-points.) Have I got it?
