OSNews: gobeProductive to be Released Under the GPL

[ Thanks to Eugenia for this link.

“The news from the Gobe Software front seem to be slightly sad,
but only at first glance. Sad because, Gobe as we know it is no
more, as it sold the gobeProductive source code and rights to
FreeRadicalSoftware, Inc. However, FreeRadicalSoftware’s business
plan requires them to GPL the popular office suite, allowing
everyone to access gobeProductive’s source for Windows, Linux and
even BeOS. The official announcement is expected next week.
FreeRadicalSoftware was created recently by the ex-boss of Gobe
Software, Bruce Hammond, and some other ex-Gobe and non-Gobe

1. So, what is happening with Gobe and gobeProductive

Bruce Hammond: FreeRadical has purchased the rights to
develop and market products based on the gobeProductive source
code. We have also been working with another company–now called
Gobe, LLC–that plans to take over the marketing and sales and
support of gobeProductive 3.x. for Windows There is a perfect
continutity there for our users. Exprect to see further press
information about this in the next few weeks…”
