I saw Discourse is listed on wikipedia and stuff, and it’s listed as open source, but then it’s a paid software. What’s the difference? I just love understanding the business model of SaaS companies. Love the Software!
No, Discourse is 100% Open Source, they also provide Paid Hosting for the software (along with maintaining it for you).
The software is free. The computers and the people who keep them operating and the software updated are not.
You can follow these instructions to install Discourse on a computer of your choosing and get the software for free.
(Like @cpradio just said.)
I see, thanks for the answers guys, really appreciate that! <3
Anyways, I really love Discourse, It’s an Awesome Software! <3
