> Yes I'm generally happy when I get new stuff for free, but I don't expect that to always happen.

Sure. But when a product is advertised as open source, I expect it to be true.




Open source never includes the guarantee that there will be future open source releases. If their new license won't work for you, it's as if it just stopped being maintained. Use and/or fork the most recent open source version.


A paragraph of this announcement is literally titled "Commercializing Open-Source". This is a blatant lie.
