These are chat archives for spyder-ide/public
enum34etc). Most likely an issue with third-party dependencies that's hopefully not as much as a problem in Spyder 4 (now in beta) . If you can't get it to work for now, it should still work from the Console.
@anthonyrolandb You can use Spyder to create whatever software you want, and share and sell it to whomever you choose! No free/open-source license by definition, whether permissive (MIT/BSD) or copyleft (GPL), can restrict the purposes for you can use open source software (whether for commercial use, military technology, political purposes, etc); rather, open-source licenses only affect the redistribution of the software or derivative works thereof (for example, if you bundled Spyder itself in a product for your clients, or your company developed a new IDE based on Spyder's code, the license would apply, but no open-source license can, generally, affect the use or output of the software unless portions of the software is included in the output).
Furthermore, Spyder is under the MIT license, the most permissive available, so it only requires the attribution, disclaimers and notices be retained if Spyder is distributed but you can add code and incorporate it into a derived work under your own proprietary license if you so choose.
FYI, I just used Spyder to develop an ensemble machine learning system to do weather prediction for a major weather company, BTW.
@serra Not sure it can be directly fixed on Spyder's side, since Windows can be quite annoying at not recalling the positions of its namesakes properly on application launch, particularly with two-monitor setups. However, an possible workaround is just using the Win-Left/Right/Up/Down keys to quickly maximize, minimize, resize (to 1/2 or 1/4 of the screen) and move (between positions or even monitors) your windows.
Once you're used to it, you can set up a whole workspace with multiple windows exactly how you want it in just a few seconds; its become one of the three shortcuts I absolutely couldn't live without, second only to Alt-Tab and arguably ahead of even Win+<Type> to launch applications.
Alt-Space, Cis IMO a far faster way to close windows than the ergonomic nightmare that is Alt-F4.
