Well...maybe people would buy it, because it is by far the best

I do not mean to offend, just wondering if you have resisted temptation.
Thanks for your great work on behalf of dem who likes chess. :P

Thank you for your kind words.
As to the reason for my relative silence on this forum, you have to look no further than this thread... apparently the slightest topic about Houdini or myself on this forum generates a level of nonsense that is beyond redemption :lol:.

All the best,
We know what Houdini is based on. so no matter what original work you may have incorporated, Houdini is contaminated. Pretty simple. You can't legally close the source and or sell it later.
Actually, you could sell it even if it was based on open source code, as long as the source was provided. For example, Red Hat sells their linux distribution, the vast majority of it consisting of open source software. The GPL doesnt care about you selling it, it only cares about the source being open
