> Hi,
> For those users that want to browse Kylix 3 IDE (for whatever reason)
> - maybe to port one or more features to Lazarus IDE (lets think
> positive), or to compare and see how great Lazarus IDE has become. Or
> to compare the Kylix compiler to the Free Pascal compiler for
> compatibility reasons etc.  I have made my copy of Kylix 3 Open
> Edition available to everybody. I included in the archive my
> activation file and some unofficial fixes.
> Kylix 3 Open Edition is the freely available one for GPL based
> software development. I still see numerous requests for Kylix 3 Open
> Edition on various internet forums - though I always recommend FPC and
> Lazarus to them. I couldn't find any active location on the internet
> to download Kylix 3 OE, so looked through my old archive CD's and
> found it. I also emailed Borland and Embarcadero, because you cannot
> use Kylix 3 OE if you don't activate it, and the activation URL
> mentioned in the Kylix 3 product doesn't exist any more - but neither
> Borland nor Embarcadero has the facility any more to activate the
> product (no surprise there) - hence the reason I made my activation
> file available too.
> This is they typical reason I HATE any activation software - perfectly
> legal software that becomes useless because the vendor went out of
> business or the product got discontinued. Also, SourceForge.net has
> numerous projects developed with Kylix 3 OE, but cannot continue any
> more because Kylix 3 OE is not available for download.
> If you ever need a copy, email me in private and I'll send you the
> download URL. It's about a 97MB download. If anybody knows of a more
> public location I can upload this file to, please let me know - I have
> a serious limit on internet bandwidth.
> Borland cannot complain - Kylix 3 Open Edition was free for all to
> start with. I purchase Kylix 3 Pro and Kylix 3 Enterprise from them
> (though these copies or not for public download obviously) so they
> already got my money (and what a waist it was). I hate to see projects
> like on SourceForge wither and die because the development tools are
> not available for download.
