Default A post from UltraFXP forum


i am not very sure what has happened between flashfxp and ultrafxp but, does flashfxp really need to do this to a competitor? talking about the GUI copyrights, all the ftp clients look same and there are donz of FTP clients before flashfxp, did they send layer letters to flashfxp?

i am the registered user of flashfxp but i don't like flashfxp wastes time on this.

early ultrafxp help file had parts of it ripped directly from flashfxp's help file. it wasn't just similarly worded phrases, it was direct copy/paste rip-off including minor spelling and gramatical mistakes.
earlier versions of ultrafxp looked almost exactly like flashfxp. if you didn't look at the titlebar for the name of application you'd have hard time knowing which one is which. just take a look at http://www.trvx.com/~mxxcon/old_ufxp.png
that's one of the reasons why version 1.0+ changed it's look to something like this http://fileforum.betanews.com/screen...1056421264.jpg

earlier versions of ufxp ripped off layout and wording of options screen too, once again including minor spelling and gramatical mistakes.
not all ftp clients look the same. cuteftp or smartftp or wsftp or ftpvoyager never looked like flashfxp or like each other. they can be configured to have somewhat similar layout..but ufxp went way beyond that.

don't worry about that. as you can see by the beta releases bigstar is still completly dedicated to flashfxp development. other, better "law-aware", people handle ufxp issue.
