GlovePIE Comments

Don't download.

Comment by Krimsun
about GlovePIE Mar 2016

Do not install/download it contains the Win/Heur now, and can't be trusted due to a hacker hacking the site. They never put up a clean version.

If you must install a it, run a virus scan first or download a safer copy elsewhere.

I'd recommend FreePie.

Warning: Restrictive, discriminatory, anti-American, and just plain odd software license

Comment by zerothisbaud
about GlovePIE and OpenPIE, CWiid Aug 2014

The licensing agreement to use GlovePIE has several discriminatory and odd restrictions based on who the users are and what they do for a living. Several types of use are restricted based on purely ideological and political views of the developer and require users to wave certain constitutional rights (and is implied, support the developer's views). Don't use if you don't agree to it.
