Beware of this company! The original Grass package can be found at http://grass.itc.it. These people are selling a bundle of freely available Open Source software illegaly on their website for a tremendous amount of money, so keep your hands off this download!

90 Mb freeware... WOW... Where is the catch? There must be a catch given the fact that the severe accusations below have not been addressed!

Are these guys seriously re-selling software that is free to download?! Amazing.

Before doing business with this company, you may wish to take a look at their Better Business Bureau filing:

These guys took payment from me for their open office suite (by credit card) - it never showed up. They don't answer emails.

Just thought you might like to know their business practises.

Which is confusing me, anyway, because I thought OpenOSX didn't release free applications.

The original poster is trying to make a comment about the company, not this particular application.

The company is rotten to the bone.

They charge [large] amounts of money for programs that are other peoples work, offer no support or service for the fee other than a CD-ROM that you may or may not ( see previous poster ) receive.

Unfortunately since it's not against the GPL to sell software, even if you own nothing in it, he can't be sued on those grounds, but you might take the case to the Better Business Bureau.

They have also taken money from me and never filled the order - I've sent faxes, emails, tried to phone - no answer.
