So...

Post by the_bean » 2003-03-15 07:04

So when can we get our dirty hands on it ? Why not make a release now ?

I reallly hope it will be opensource unlike ptokax, otherwise the reason for using it kinda disappears.

Will it implement any bandwidth saving measures such as quicklist ?

How does being closed source make something less useful?

It robs you of the false sense of security that you can download the code and change it meet your needs. Most people are neither talented enough to change the code (or find bugs in it), nor are they prepared for the learning curve that new code presents.

Otherwise, after two and a half years, there wouldn't be only a dozen or two people mucking with the DC++ source. :-)
