      Wish you had said this in the other thread lol. Yes Amy is right, it's a shame most people don't act this way. *heads off to edit his post*

      In which case I agree totally with you!

    • Cant the license simply come down to Choice?
      If people are willing to pay for components, modules ect... does it really matter?

      Danny -

      3PD's can continue to charge for extensions (they will technically be charging for distribution), all that they need to do is license the extensions using a GPL-compliant license. Business can continue as it does today - making and delivering great extensions to people who want to buy them.

      I have no idea why Clexus decide to stop offering their extensions. I hope they have a change of heart. I have not talked to them. Honestly, they would be the ones to answer that question, yes?

      Thanks!
