I'm using the cygwin tools from the Cygwin CD on a consulting project. I'm
just writing shell scripts and tcl, so I'm not using the GNUPro tools, or
linking to the cygwin.dll. But I need to advise my customer exactly what
they need to do to use the CD at their site.
I understand that the installer (hence the CD) is copyrighted by
Cygnus/Redhat, and isn't under the GPL. Therefore, I can't distribute
copies of the CD. That's fine- my customer can certainly afford to buy
But the more important question, usually answered by a license, is what can
our customer do with a single copy of the CD? Can you install it on exactly
one machine? Do you need one copy per user? Can you install it on
multiple machines from a single CD?
Given the very reasonable price, it doesn't really matter that much which
option it is, but I'd like to give them the "official" answer.
