[AppDB] Application type: Comes with device

Post by MartinDJR » Sun Dec 13, 2020 2:45 am


Yesterday, I submitted an AppDB report.
During the submit, I was asked for the application (license) type: Freeware, Retail, Subscription, ...

The application that I have tested was a tool intended to work together with a certain hardware device and it has been released by the device's manufacturer.

I think that the types in the list (Freeware, Retail, Subscription, ...) do not really match in this case.
And I think that a lot of Linux users use hardware whose manufacturers provide software for Windows, and many of them will (try to) run this software under Wine.

Therefore, I think it would be a good idea to add an additional application (license) type for applications that come together with hardware.

Thanks for reading,
