bizarre pseudo-libre license

It’s not okay to pretend your software is open source (Drew DeVault, 2018)

I’ve read through the license and although it is weird as hell it allows everything except the commercial use, at least that was my understanding since I don’t know Legalese very well.

It does but I don’t get why

“Everything except the commercial use” means it does not meet the definitions of Open Source or Free Software and therefore is offtopic in this sub. I wonder if the non-commercial license choice has to do with the fact that one of the developers works for Discord?

Also, it appears that they’ve somehow made a Matrix client+server that currently doesn’t federate? (That is on their roadmap, but it is an unchecked box currently. Also unchecked is the box for e2e encryption.)

Looks interesting, but the license is strange and likely not FOSS.

Yeah, I also found the license really weird, what’s weirder is that the license’s web site is hosted on WordPress, not the most professional of tactics.

I love how every chat service now clones Discord’s UI.

It looks cool, but their license is really weird.

Forums + chat is the way these applications will rise in use. Chat is just too slow for when there are few people, and forums will bring more people interested on the topic in.

I may not be seeing it, but it talks about unification, but more in the continent of replacing them with a chat interface? Their git repository nor their site isn’t making me wiser.

Anyone with experience know whether it’s easier to admin?
