You might remember the image editor application Refraction, which once was considered as 'Photoshop Lite for the BeOS'.
It was developed by Frans van Nispen, who also created the application SampleStudio Pro, which has an open source version called BeAE that can be found on HaikuDepot.
When the developer was contacted regarding the possibility of them open-sourcing Refraction, they stated in their reply:
“The cost to be able to opensource it would be around 10.000 Euro’s. That would cover the cost to update the licensing, double check the code for any licensing issues, deal with our former associates, etc…
This does not cover our intellectual property, nor the cost of development, though we would be willing to donate that part to the Haiku community. Meaning that if you can raise the 10k by crowd funding, we will opensource it.”
Here is a description of the application by its head developer:
