Charmed Quark Controller Going Open Source

Dean Roddey, the creator of CQC, has thrown in the towel, but is planning on releasing CQC as open source. It's very unfortunate as CQC is an incredibly powerful (and incredibly complex) software package. I am looking forward to checking it out for building touchscreen interfaces, but I really like the platform independence of my AJAX GUI. I will, however, try to add xPL support to CQC. In any case, it makes you wonder how the makers of HAL can possibly survive.

Update: The link above has been updated by Dean. He is no longer planning on open sourcing CQC...
