Aptana, GPL, and the definition of “intact”

Friday, July 1st, 2011

I’m looking at Python IDEs and decided to try Aptana, but their installer isn’t giving the best first impressions. First it did nothing but peg my CPU for half a minute or so, without so much as a splash screen. Then, when it finally showed some GUI, the very first screenful of text was downright incomprehensible:

Aptana License Agreement

No, there’s no horizontal scrollbar to explain why the beginnings of words are cut off.

What I love most is how that last line insists that this victim of random hack-and-slash copy/paste must be kept… “intact”.
