Submission + - How to manage a commercial source-code sale for a (pldaniels.com) 2

inflex writes: "I have a software suite that has been running for well over a decade and sold to companies such as Nashua, VirginBlue and NationalFoods. Many components are now OpenSource. I want to focus on my wife's career (Independent novelist) and am considering selling the source/rights to my commercial software and letting someone else take the reins. I'm looking for advice on how best to approach the situation — should I go through the 250k LoC and clean it up a bit, or just hand it over as it's currently running. Would it be advisable to bring in an escrow/3rd-party? I have no heavy emotional attachment to it, tens of thousands of people use the OpenSource components,of which will naturally remain that way but obviously the commercial version will diverge over time."

Submission + - Which eBook path is best for self-published books? 1

inflex writes: After successfully self publishing my wife's fantasy novel in dead-tree format using LyX, GIMP and Inkscape in Linux, we're now trying to choose the best path to take in order to release it as an e-book. There are many options available to us — Amazon, Lightning Source, Google's ePub or finally ordinary plain PDF. Optimistally we'd love to go with PDF but are worried about blatent copying, contract lock-in, distribution and compatibility with the multitude of eBook readers.
