GPL Questions

Roy Osherove gives us the very nice Regulator.

In this he is using a GPL'd SharpDevelop control and non GPL ComponentOne.

This would make The Regulator fall under the license of GPL.  Now wouldn't adding the ComponentOne controls require that too to be GPL, which Roy does not have the right to give?  This may not be the case.  I am just trying to understand how this works.



Suggestion for .Text

It would be nice if .Text would show the number of comments for a post on the main aggregate page.  That way we don't have to click to see if anyone left any comments.

It could look like the following:

Smart Client Readiness Program for ISVs

Has anyone received their kits for this?  I signed up a while ago from the microsft partners website, but am still waiting. 


Visual Basic Resource Kit Download Available is for C# Developers too!

I originally skipped over this before because it said Visual Basic.  But there are goodies in here for C# developers too.  Check it out:

this CD contains a powerful collection of free, fully functional Microsoft .NET controls, including:

  • ComponentOne Studio Enterprise
    A comprehensive collection of more than 30 high-quality WinForms and ASP.NET Web controls including grid components, reporting components, charting components, data components, user-interface components, and e-commerce components.
  • Dundas Chart For Windows Forms, Professional Edition
    Developed for rich-client .NET applications, this fully-managed charting control gives you all the features of a premium charting control. This functionality combined with incredible design-time support allows for the fast and easy creation of sensational looking charts that have the exact look and feel that you require.
  • Infragistics UltraWebNavigator and UltraWinTree Controls
    UltraWinTree delivers an advanced .NET tree control that surpasses the look and functionality of the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET TreeView control. UltraWebNavigator is the first tool to provide a simple, easy-to-use designer to create menu and tree hierarchies, making it possible for Web masters and non-programmers to build eye-popping navigation systems and outlines visually, without writing code.
  • Sax Software Corp
    Sax.net Communications makes it easy to add scalable serial communications to all your .NET applications.

I'm downloading it now.

Don't you love free books?

I was out of the office yesterday.  Today I find a copy of Programming Microsoft Windows with C# by Charles Petzold sitting on my desk. 

Thanks Microsoft.
