      Because Cedega was pulling Wine code, extended it with their own Direct3D shit and didn't contribute back.

      That however is _NOT_ embrace, extend and extinguish.

      • The Windows Kerberos story, however, was classic Embrace, Extend and Extinguish.

          And the t-shirt I'm wearing right now is grey.

          So my point is: what exactly is your point?

          • Well, since it's in LGPL, not GPL, you could technically make adjustments you want under LGPL to change the API such that you could get to use all functionality from Wine in your proprietary program and then keep extending the functionality in the proprietary side which links against Wine. Sort of a mess but as far as I've understood legal.
