Is paint.net still FOSS?


Recommended Posts

1) There is no "they." There's only one guy, Rick.

2) It was getting ridiculous how many people were stealing Paint.NET's source and making it available as their own work.

3) It's never been FOSS. It's always only ever been FS, Source-Available. Some losers ruined it for everyone.

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

What happened? What did they do? Was it stealing the source and renaming it? Or was it the mono port to linux.

A great deal more (proportionately), though, with this program. Or so it seemed, at least. Rick finally just got fed up.

I have no problem with the mono port, other than disappointment at its incompleteness. I only had them change the name to paint-mono to avoid any trademark issues.
