XPDF Author refuses to support SCO customers

I've removed advertising from most of this site and will eventually clean up the few pages where it remains.

While not terribly expensive to maintain, this does cost me something. If I don't get enough donations to cover that expense, I will be shutting the site down in early 2020.

If you found something useful today, please consider a small donation.

XPDF Author refuses to support SCO customers (link dead, sorry)

This is entirely understandable. I think it is morally wrong, but as I've said before, I'm not sure that I wouldn't do the same thing were I in these folks shoes.

I think xpdf's author's decision to abandon SCO users is merely hurting the users, not SCO. In fact, I believe his turning his back on SCO users of xpdf plays right into the hands of Darl and his buddies. If other Open Source authors take the same tack then SCO will have inadvertently succeeded in damaging the Open Source model.

I don't disagree, but I also understand his position. It's tough either way.
