What if they're selling the cart passing it on as theirs. Is this still legal? I would think it would be wrong.

They can do this as long as they comply with the GPL.

 

You will find some good disucssions on what is allowed / dissallowed in the GPL forum.

It is designed for Echo (a processing service), and it's actually free :)

 

Anyhow, they must give back to the community, since I downloaded their service, and was all prepared to hack it to remove echo functionality, and _hey look_ it's oscommerce! So, I promptly went here (after my FREE download), and downloaded oscommerce. As soon as I get paid, I'm making a donation :P

 

Don't be so quick to be angry. Their site may claim it's theirs, that's ok (it's not GPL :) ). The program is fully compliant, and doesn't steal credit at all.

Yeah, the more versions out there (even if they are color blind) :wink: the better!

 

Lots of killer programming projects have taken off from similar open source projects.

 

maybe echocart will turn out to be even better....

 

At least it contributes something additional.

Its been a while since I checked out echo.

 

I was irritated at echo for making trivial changes to osc just because their programmer has different ideas about coding style. If he was inventing new features that would be different.

The echo API is complicated, there are a lot of gateways and API's out there. Many charge.

Echo is free, which is good. But Why oh Why doesnt echo just offer osc with an echo payment module? What they are doing doesnt make sense to me.

Open Source: free, as in speech.

 

I think that's the point of OS - someone using the product does not have to like the way it has been put together and does not have to stick with it as it comes. It is only OS that really does let people add their own mods for whatever reason they like. It's great that they have, and have given full credit where relevant.

 

What they appear to be offering is simplicity. A cart that works with their services right from the word go. No hacking, no diving into the code - just install and go. Whether people like it or not, isn't OS meant to encourage that type of thing?
