I only just found out about this
@Kickstarter to open source the Sciter HTML engine - it has <48 hours to go but I think we can do it! kickstarter.com/projects/c-smi

@mala

>runs on 460 million PC and Macs worldwide as UI engine of various applications: Norton Antivirus, Avast Antivirus, Eset Antivirus, BitDefender and many others

So why don't the companies pay for it?

this is exactly what open source is about: the community develops software for companies to profit

we need to go more the free software way and force the companies to at least pay for the development or better contribute back!

@davidak they do pay for it. it's proprietary code currently which they license. this is to pay for it to be open sourced.
