The language is fast,feature packed and can compete with any other scripting language. However , requiring that any use for commercially require a specific request is rather restrictive. Iam of the opinion that this is the only thing stopping fbsl from really leading the scripting languages field.
Is there any thought on this?
The license is quite clear: you can freely code with FBSL, but if you want to do somme business with it you have to contact me to discuss about the cost of the license, business is business, FBSL was not developped freely to enrich commercials for free.
FBSL is distributed without any technical limitations, on the opposite shareware principle is to limit time or afx nag screen and so on... but not FBSL, you are absolutely FREE to FREELY distribute your programs!
