I took a look and I don't think they cribbed anything from the gplpv

But did the world really need *another* closed-source set of winpv
drivers? By my count this is #4. Maybe things looked different back in
August when they started when they could perhaps undercut the other
vendors on price, but the gplpv drivers are maturing rapidly and are

I'd like to renew my call to Halsign as well as the other vendors to
give up on these drivers as "value-add" and pitch in improving gplpv. We
can all then get on with writing something NEW.
