Re: qcam on NetBSD
Just got my qcam, and joined this list, MUCH thanks to all who developed this
driver. Worked great first time.

Since Connectrix only wants to sell Windows and Mac Versions it would seem
there may be lots of other people who could use this, certainly all the *nix
people, in both the free and commercial area, but probably also the Amiga
folks, and maybe even those Be guys.
The only unfortunate part is that by buying a Windows quick cam, I have given
Connectrix the impression that I wanted their software, and was willing to
help pay for the development of it. While, in fact, if not for the efforts of
the people on this list, I certainly would not have purchased the camera.
Given their unwillingness to help in this effort, I don't suppose there is any
way that they could be convinced to sell a 'hardware only' version so that the
percentage of the sales price that contributes to the software could be
directed back to people who developed the software (I know no one has asked or
suggested it), or at least saved by those purchasing qc's for platforms that
Connectrix will not support.
I reallize that given the low price of the thing, this would only be a few
bucks, but still, for some reason, it burns me to send money to Connectrix for
something I don't want, while the people who are providing the software are
unrewarded (or worse, hindered) by Connectrix. WAKE UP Connectrix, these
people are SELLING HARDWARE for you.
Any creative suggestions about what I can do with an unopened licence to use
Connectrix Windows software? Please try to keep all suggestions anatomically
