RE[3]: Cedega Should Be Free

"Cedega is open source for everything except copy protection. If you don't live in the USA, the source is available and if you want to change it, do it yourself or hire a programmer"

Let's clear this up:

1. Cedega is not free
2. What is free is CVS which is WAY out of date and doesn't include everything that the pay version does

The whole 'if you want to change it blah blah blah' is bullshit, you know it and I know it.

If it's bullshit how come it is used as a legitimate argument for complaints against usability or gui or installation of EVERY OTHER PIECE OF OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE AVAILABLE.

ALso, yes, let's clear it up:

Cedega commercial product = copy protection ala safedisc is supported meaning that you can install the games right from the CD.

Cedega CVS product = as current as the LATEST COMMERCIAL VERSION minus all copy protection support, meaning that you will have to get a CD Crack or probably do a full install on a windows machine then copy the game's main directory over to a Linux box via Samba.

The CVS INCLUDES EVERY SINGLE UPDATE THE PAY VERSION HAS EXCEPT FOR COPY PROTECTION.

PS I wholeheartedly agree that the fix it yourself attitude sucks, but it is used as a rebuttal for EVERY SINGLE COMPLAINT.
