Getting the Windows Client
While the bulk of this project is made available free of charge, the time spent on making it is not for free. So that the whole project can support itself and to continue development of new features, the distribution policy of the Windows client is changed starting from release 2.0. Each full featured version can now be obtained for only $ 70.00
The Windows client uses the same source code from the Unix client but it is not linked to any GPL'd Qt library. However, it is interfaced to a Qt-like C++ Win32 layer. This way, source code between the Unix and Windows clients can be shared without any major changes. The non-GUI portion of this layer is available under the GPL as the XLObject library.
You can evaluate the Windows client now by downloading the demo version. The demo version has all the features of the full version with the exception that the maximum session length is only 10 minutes and that only the first 5 applications from the client's application list are made available to the user. Please read the client documentation first before beginning installation.

Frequently Asked QuestionsQ: Can I get the source for the actual Windows client?
A: The Windows client uses the same source code from the KDE client which is freely available. If you want to study the source code please take a look at the KDE client source. The Windows client is an independent effort to port the KDE client source to Windows without using the Qt library.
