XDT is crap

Postby Gussy » 2004-06-13 09:59 pm

Last night i installed XDT on my server and that was fine, apart from not explnaing very much, then i went to skin it and to my shock horror all the bloody html was hard coded apart from a tiny little bit of css.
I havent installed your script but its already doing better than XDT

One question
Can we remove the copyright?
Because http://www.launch.net has and i wonder if that allowed?

you can remove the copyright in the sense that there's nothing i can do to stop you. but it would be nice if you would either leave it there or make a small donation back to the project.

There is nothing he can do if you remove the copyright at all, that is the nature of the GNU General Public Licence. It stats allow everyone to download it and edit it as they please so that means that they can remove the copyrigth of the script and not have to do anything about it.

although people may find it suprising, i care more about making a good, truly free product than i care about some jackass taking my link off. the GPL places hardly any restrictions on the use of a script and only places restrictions on people who distribute it.
