Flash 9 Final for Linux (and an odd EULA) follow up
January 20, 2007 Leave a comment
Looks like my post about the Flash 9 EULA has sparked some discussion on John Dowdell's Blog (he's an Adobe employee). While I'd agree with the comments on his blog about “use” vs. “distribution”, it's great to see an employee participating in the discussion in an open and transparent manner. If the intent of the license is what John thinks it is, the wording really should be changed. I could absolutely see the reason for not allowing distribution, it's the “use” bit that I found surprising. As for the “restrictive commenting practices” – to be honest I really don't like the software that currently runs this blog. It's being moved to WordPress as soon as 2.1 is out.
