Is it just me or are others concerned about the fact that TransGaming, which has 'borrowed' significantly from the WINE project, is not doing the community any favors? I could probably even swallow their proprietary approach if they just charged a moderate one-off fee for the use of their code, but no, users have to just keep on feeding the coins in the slot as the meter ticks. The very antithesis of FOSS.
The thing that really gets me is this nonsense about a 'community' they spout. Sure, they're happy to listen to what the suckers want - as long as the patsies keep feeding the coins that is. Community implies reciprocated altruism - there is no goodwill factor here, just the very worst of cynical capitalism.
While Gentoo and Debian were 'discouraged' from including Cedega in their repositories for fear of undermining TGs revenue, what about WINE's 'revenue'? Every minute gamers spend testing and posting on titles for Cedega, is time they have not spent on improving WINE, a true FLOSS app. Personally I'd rather boot Windows (gag!) than pay TG for the use of Cedega - at least MS don't pretend to be anything other than a pack of money crazed $*^%$#s!
