  • Tell HN: FOSS and FLOSS software illegally on sale in Microsoft Store
    2 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 26 Oct 2021
    Yesterday LibreCAD user found that there is un-official 'publishers' which sells "LibreCad 2" and other free & open-source software via Microsoft Store.[0,1]

    Yorik van Havre first reaction:

    > History repeats... Fortunately the community can be quite powerful in those cases[2]

    > At least here they didn't rebrand the app and clearly state that it is open-source. Looks like a lawyer's work...[3]

    After few minutes of search we discovered[4,5] there are much more similar cases:

    - "FreeCad" by 'appsmedia1'

    - "BRL-CAD" by 'Alef_Soft‬'

    ... and much worse there are half-rebranded FOSS/FLOSS too:

    - LibreCAD as "LibreCad 2" by 'Alef_Soft'

    - FreeCAD as "FreeCAD for Windows" by 'appsmedia1'

    - Scribus as "Scribus Indesign" by 'Alef_Soft'

    - Darktable as "DarkTable LightRoom" by 'Alef_Soft'

    - Lightscreen as "ScreenShot Lightscreen" by 'Alef_Soft‬'

    So, if you know other FOSS & FLOSS software which is on sell in Microsoft Store — let us know & ”Lets report them!”[6]

    Would it be worth getting something like FreeCad or LibreCad and just start using that?

    For 2D CAD, there is QCAD that is limited software (it is more of a freeware deal). I use LibreCAD which is a fork that tries to replicate non-free features of QCAD. If you use LibreCAD, make sure to use the latest release candidate: https://github.com/LibreCAD/LibreCAD/releases/ (you may have to build this yourself or grab a more buggy older version from your distro's package manager if you don't know how to build software from source).
