What kind of software is it?



A set of macros

How much reuse and/or redistribution do you want?

I don't mind a couple of people using my software, but really I'm putting it on the Internet for the fame and adoration. My home page could also do with some new content.

I don't want those capitalist pigs ripping off my work and using it to save themselves some work while profiting from my years of hard work. BSD sucks.

I don't mind capitalist pigs ripping off my work. I am a capitalist pig and all's fair in love and war. BSD rocks.

I am RMS.

Which operating system(s) is it for?




Mac OS X
