This deceptive hybrid model (based I my understanding of it per
the description above) is really offensive to those of us who
understand the concept of open-source, and the benefits that
flow from it.
You (not you personally - I mean the person implementing such a
hybrid model) lure people in with free open source, then, when
something is found to be wrong with it, you make them wait for
the fix.. until.. .. .. your ransom has been paid.
Utterly offensive (the model that is).
Open source means just that ... Open source - It's turtles all
the way down.
Ransom-ware is something very different.
Except it's none of those things, as you yourself grasp that it's
a "hybrid model," ie not purely open source. So it cannot be
deceptive, offensive, or ransom-ware, since it's perfectly clear
that it's its own thing. And that mixed model is pretty much the
way all software is built these days, including the linux kernel
as mentioned earlier in this thread, so you are clearly using
such mixed software too, just by the fact that you posted in this
So given that all your claims are easily logically proven to be
nonsense, there's no point in going any further.
