For anyone relatively new to the FreeDOS email lists, Jack's drivers
come up every once in a while. Jack writes good code, but he tends to
get very upset very quickly, and then lashes out at people. He has
brought a lot of ill will here. It's no surprise that Jack keeps
adding notices in his software "license" that says you cannot use his
program on or with FreeDOS.

Yes, I wish we could go our separate ways. Eric sometimes likes to
"advertise" some of the stuff Jack is doing elsewhere. It always
generates a lot of unhelpful noise.

Until Jack re-releases his programs under an open source software
license, I remain uninterested in the things he is doing. I wish him
the best, but closed source DOS doesn't interest me.
