Assume for a minute, your a company that only sells Linux applications.
If anyone can copy your product, how do you make money? Companies
such as Red Hat and SuSE will let you copy their product, but they can
charge for service. It's hard to charge for service, on stand alone
There is not a W98 version of Win4Lin, it's a product that allows you to
run Windows on Linux.
If you want free, use Wine, which comes with most Linux distros.
Don't *EVER* assume a product is free, simply because you don't want to
pay for it. Copying such software is theft, and makes you a parasite.
