PC-Task is now free!

Good news again!
I emailed Chris Hames, the author of PC-Task, asking about making PC-task public domain.
This is what he replied to my emails

> freely available to everyone. I would also add if you think it is necessary, that you wont provide any suport whatsoever, and not be liable for any damage at all.

How about I declare Amiga users can freely use/distribute (completely at their own risk) the previously released versions of PC-Task, but not sell it (or obtain financial advantage) in any way.

Regards,
Chris

Sure.

Poseidon has *already* been made open source (for the aros community).
It must "just" be compiled for Workbench 3.x !
