Legal Let's do a little trip down memory lane. We're talking the '80s, early '90s, and we're looking at a company called Borland, which produced several well-known and popular products related to software development. Back in those days, Borland had an end user license agreement. However, contrary to the EULAs we know and despise today, Borland's 'No-Nonsense License Statement' was a whole lot simpler, and in fact, is a perfect example of how software should be treated.

After their software was ancient and of no longer practical use for serious development, but still of interest to nostalgic hobbyist like myself, they released it free of charge on their website. I liked borland, but I think they really screwed up Delphi.

Also to be fair, Microsoft poached all of their talent.
