OSNews, Generic OSes This is a painful article to write. I've been a longtime fan and user of what is affectionately known as PC/GEOS over the years. However, I'm fearing we're nearing the end of GEOS.

The original set of Import/Export filters were licensed from another company. I don't know if the licensed code is contained entirely in the filters or if it extends into the ImpEx engine. If it's in the engine, that open sourcing things may not be possible.

I think the RTF filter was written entirely by Breadbox, so that's probably the best one to ask about if you want to push the issue.
