  • How can you sell an Open Source software?
    Tux Rider is an Open Source software that complies to the GPLv2. Hence the source code is made available to all clients. Yet, the GPLv2 doesn't says that the author cannot be rewarded for his work. In fact, there is a widely spread misunderstanding that says that Open Source equals free of charge.

    The free software foundation clearly explains:

    “Free software is a matter of liberty, not price.
    To understand the concept, you should think of free as in free speech, not as in free beer.”
