Each to their own. I like the way it works and style of Linux, where as I don't like BSD that much. Personal Preference.
I do - actively contributing to a couple of open source applications and operating systems. It's just that I don't have the time to establish a better Linux distribution completely on my own.
But the majority of the other alternatives also have this flaw, on top of them being very encumbered by cost (and closed nature). Each to their own, if you don't like Linux then more power to you mate, enjoy BSD.
Have you ever heard of idiocracy?
Seriously though, FLOSS was about transparency one day. Systemd blurs transparency and makes it harder to understand what your system is doing. Also, with systemd enabled, you'll have to accept a pretty lot of default services if you don't want to lose "functionality". Replacing them is deprecated. Choice is made harder.
*shrug* I guess
Missed the last part, haven't you?
It was an implication, perhaps I am reading too much into it.
No one said you were.
Whatever works for you dude :eheh:
We only took a decision not to make any decisions, if I may say... We didn't want to get into the technicalities of money making (selling the main software? selling plugins? selling support?), especially since we both knew we had little to earn here, and it would be more of a hassle than anything else. However, with Pete leaving the project and me having a kid, I guess I'm in a situation where I need to make an actual decision.
I guess it could be a "spare time" or "Passion" thing. Perhaps monetizing it would move it out of the realm of your little baby, and into your little headache.
Of course, considering how few forums are currently using Wedge, despite it being 10 times better than any SMF or ElkArte package, I don't think I'm ever going to make over $100 for these 5 years of work, so yeah...
Tech support is always low paid -_____-
Who cares, eh. Even selling the software + tech support won't bring much.
Maybe keep it a "when you can" thing, you seem to enjoy it. If I knew dev i'd help, but i'm hopeless.
The caveat, of course, is that I'll have to eventually push Wedge to the side, and devote myself to a business that actually makes me some money. :(
Either way I like the forum and I am going to keep at it (I briefly tried Elk and asked if there was a Wedge to Elk importer, and while I like it, the Wedge project seems to have more friendly people). :whistle:
