Which is already not the latest version. Did anyona see PKZ use any
Also, Phil Zimmermann has probably seen the source for 7.0.3. I assume
he even has that source himself. Further, he used it for public signing
- but I don't know if he also uses it for confidentional encrypted
Besides, living in the USA, I assume he would be sued by NAI when he
started using an lower, open-source version because that would result
in a severe loss of sale for NAI. After all, noone would trust the 7.x
versions anymore when PKZ would use 6.x. In fact, I even wonder why he
doesn't do this anyway as a form of protest, to teach NAI that going
closed source is not the right way.
Except from his short statements, he has further kept _very_ silent
about the matter. Too silent IMO. I'm not sure what to think of this
Anyway, there are also other reasons for me not to use NAI pgp, or even
the CKT builds: since I use it mostly on Linux and only rarely on win32,
I prefer GnuPG, which is more Unix minded.
