Not from me. My questionning is more on why does he mention the GPL,
when Wine is under the LGPL... (I know you can transfer any copy of a
LGPL code to GPL, as per section 3 of the LGPL)
Do they use the standard CrossOffice, or a special "animation studio
only" version? Since Photoshop works in plain CrossOffice, I'd say it's
the plain version, but I don't work for CodeWeavers.
