Umbraco Commercial Packages buy or not license

If we take a look at some of the commercial packages available on the platform though, as Richard Soeteman CMS Import and Anders Burla Tea Commerce, we get a completely different experience. Packets are stored and frequent updates. Because they receive income from their packages, they now have that have a vested interest to keep them up to date, and from a customer perspective, this should be a much better impression, right?

    I think that the commercial packages are intended for large and complex packages (packages, e-Commerce etc), developers are not going to spend time and effort to create such decisions, if they were paid.

    These types of packets will never be a candidate to go into the kernel (or will be developed HQ) and should be available for Umbraco should consider anything beyond a basic brochure site.

    I do and will continue to support these developers by buying their licenses.

    However, I don't see a problem with small packets of commercial and these small packages are potential candidates for being in the kernel (for example, Richards media Protection). This puts HQ is in a terrible situation in which the protection of content pages, but the basic protection of the mass media...and not put it in the main would be stepping on the toes important for community members.

    Imagine if uComponents was a commercial...the current Umbraco versions have some of these great data types, baked in the kernel? No, probably not.

    So I can understand why HQ wants to distance himself from small commercial packages and try to promote OSS and the community spirit for OSS, but I don't understand why they are trying to sabotage the large (necessity of non-core type) packages at the same time.

Wise Words

"When we finally presented it at the shareholders' meeting, everyone in the auditorium stood up and gave it a five-minute ovation. What was incredible to me was that I could see the Mac team in the first few rows. It was as though none of us could believe that we'd actually finished it. Everyone started crying."

Staying over with a friend was very nice and also useful. It made my trip cost way less, while I also had some...

My worry about losing the Queen

My worry about losing the Queen would be that she would still be entitled to take money from the Crown Estates. I hope when negotiations are taking place after the referendum, that the SNP would not go soft on this and on a number of other matters, like being over generous with the entitlement...
