116 Why pthreads-win32 did not use the GNU General Public License
117 -------------------------------------------------------------
118
119 The goal of the pthreads-win32 project has been to
120 provide a quality and complete implementation of the POSIX
121 threads API for Microsoft Windows within the limits imposed
122 by virtue of it being a stand-alone library and not
123 linked directly to other POSIX compliant libraries. For
124 example, some functions and features, such as those based
125 on POSIX signals, are missing.
126
127 Pthreads-win32 is a library, available in several different
128 versions depending on supported compilers, and may be used
129 as a dynamically linked module or a statically linked set of
130 binary modules. It is not an application on it's own.
131
132 It was fully intended that pthreads-win32 be usable with
133 commercial software not covered by either the GPL or the LGPL
134 licenses. Pthreads-win32 has many contributors to it's
135 code base, many of whom have done so because they have
136 used the library in commercial or proprietry software
137 projects.
138
139 Releasing pthreads-win32 under the LGPL ensures that the
140 library can be used widely, while at the same time ensures
141 that bug fixes and improvements to the pthreads-win32 code
142 itself is returned to benefit all current and future users
143 of the library.
144
145 Although pthreads-win32 makes it possible for applications
146 that use POSIX threads to be ported to Win32 platforms, the
147 broader goal of the project is to encourage the use of open
148 standards, and in particular, to make it just a little easier
149 for developers writing Win32 applications to consider
150 widening the potential market for their products.
