I'm guilty of reading their page and taking ideas from them
Oh, my sainted aunt, I hope you are not wrestling with your morals.
Open Office / LibreOffice, presumably, got about 99% of their ideas from Microsoft Office.
Ideas, even if nothing else, are up for grabs.
I got the idea for using graphic objects for xTalk animation from watching a TV programme in 1969 (!) about Walt Disney's multi-plane camera
(thereby sidestepping the need to shell out $500 for an animation engine) . . . OK, OK, I light candles in front of a statue of Ganesh for Walt Disney's soul from time to time [something I am 100% sure Walt Disney's "shade" is grateful for . . . LOL . . . him being a BIGTIME Hindu . . . ROFL], but I am not sending $$$ to the Disney Corp.
If LiveCode come up with something new AND interesting [not since they implemented total Unicode compliance as far as I am concerned], I will TRY to imitate that functionality 100%, and my morals will be free as a bird.
One of my hobbies is to download one of those fairly stupid free games available on the internet: fool around with it for, say, 20 minutes, and then to try to recreate the whole functionality in LC/OXT . . . seminal to say the least as I have NO access to the underlying code.
After Kev's rude and unfeeling dumping of the Open Source version (which I invested), they have set themselves up for this, and I have no fekking qualms whatsoever about nicking ideas (I will NOT try to reverse engineer their code, or steal stacks out of their IDE package) of theirs'.
GOD [take that to mean whatever suits you] has equipped us with brains, and, unlike most organised religions, I am quite sure he/she/it would be happy if we use them: and if that means taking someone else's idea and running with it in a new direction [pace William Shakespeare, who ripped off absolutely everything and made FAR, FAR BETTER confections than the originals (and he is, by the way, a saint in the Church of Richmond)], then "Good On You!"
Heaven is NOT some daft, nebulous place, it is the ability to be creative in a positive way on our wee planet.
This message was 'informed' by large amounts of Bulgarian white wine, and so should be taken with . . .
. . . large amounts of your local white wine.
Trick question (and I do not know the answer, but it does make me feel a bit odd):
Is 'Arnie' really advertising Power Drills in Bulgaria, or is this a really BAD case of A.I. Deep Fake?
