Personally, I find this thread a clear picture about why Free(dom) software has so many difficults. I'm a free software activist since LONG time, and I'm reviewing here "the same old story". People don't understand Free Software, don't value freedom, and just want "free lunch". Also I find funny the argument "I don't give you money since you don't give me your time and software for free" Pathetic (and very recurring in my experience) the one "I would donate a huge amount of money, but since you are asking me with a "nag screen"/"whatever I dislike and I dislike everything", I will not" (where you were you these long years Proxmox was asking for donations and there was no nag screen?) or "this is not Free(dom) software if I have to pay" (never heard about Richard Stallman, FSF and read the (A)GPL license?) I'm looking forward all this people to found their own firm, fork Proxmox code and provide everyone the same level of code freedom, professional support and rich updated features Proxmox team has provided us so far. Of course, this time also for free(lunch)! In the meantime I'm waiting (hope a matter of days) the last piece of hardware I've ordered to assemble my new home Proxmox server and get a subscription to help (= give something back) this fabulous and very true Free project.
