Little known fact - foobar2000 is actually maintained by his cats.
abandoned because of a stupid accident which can always happen.
You know what would destroy foobar2000 harder than this unlikely event?Opening the source to the core. Filthy amateurs would immediately fork it and/or rely on internal implementation detail and quirks. The discussion has been had many times over, and open source is not the solution.The proper solution would be inheriting the codebase to some of the trusted inner circle, and it wouldn't surprise me if grand fallbacks along those lines aren't already possible.Anyway, if someone really wanted to, they'd write an interface-compatible player. They could even make it cross-platform if they were so inclined.
To me, open source is not only about giving away stuff, it is also about preserving great software for the use of society
Zao: think what you will, but from what I gathered, Miriam didn't violate either the LGPL or HA's terms of service. Can we do without libelous and potentially TOS #2 violating name calling please?
Where did they get the "200 Linus Torvaldses" from?
