Re: [Czechlist] TERM: proprietary tool
- You understood it correctly. It doesn't necessarily have to be "sami
pro sebe", but it could just be "sami". For example, some computer
consultants tried to sell a company I worked for a payroll reporting
system that was unacceptable for two reasons:
1. It was written in proprietary language (i.e., the programming
language was exclusive to that consulting firm and developed by them).
2. It worked in Windows only.
The "Windows only" part has nothing to do with your question, but it's
part of what really happened in the situation.
Anyway, "proprietary" in situations like this means that that company
developed it, and it's exclusive to them, but not necessarily that
they use it only for their own purposes.
