Re: A rip-off is a rip-off !!!!!!

Thank you for the laugh Fred, this has been by far the funniest series of mails to the Dia list I've ever seen.

If I wasn't falling out of my chair right now I would agree with you: Dia is a "rip-poff".

For the record it is also "simper" than Visio.  It may even be the "simpest" diagramming software there is.

Good luck tilting at windmills.

Yours etc.,

A rip-off is a rip-poff !!!!!

You need to clean up your English typing, before you widely publish it in a USERâs FORUM.
The gist of what I read is, that to obtain what I need I should read the source code and develop my own version?
Huh????   I have a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering, with a minor in Computer Science, but I would not even begin to waste a minute to unravel the spaghetti code typical of Open Source Freeware.
What you should feature in your FORUM is: âIf a vendor charges $14.00 for Freeware, not his own, on EBay, should he declare under the Product Description that this software is available free of charge, including the User Manual, for a couple of minutes of download time? No need to wait a week for a CDROM to arrive from England.  And that the free download is a later version than the $14.00 version sent on a CDROM via USPS sneaker  mail?
Then there is the deception that Dia is a âsimperâ version of VISIO?  I downloaded a 60-day free trial of 2010 VISIO and I can tell you without reservation, Dia it is not even close!
A rip-off is a rip-off !!!!!!
