Open Source, like Plone, becoming too mercenary?
It seems in recent years a number of the "open source" communities have become exponentially mercenary, scaling down the core of products to try to force paid development or add ons. Plone is just one of many examples of this unfortunate trend in the open source community (which I have been a part of since the 1980s)...
Our Top and Ongoing Woes with Odoo
We've been using Odoo back in the OpenERP days, but still struggle with some core problems in the design of this platform. It meets our needs for our various small companies, but there is significant pain associated. Unfortunately we haven't found a better fit over all these years to the feature set we need. Here is a list of the challenges/problems we keep running into spanning Odoo versions 11 through 15 and ongoing...
Apache OFBiz on OpenBSD

Odoo has become too Mercenary. Abandoning Odoo and evaluating alternative replacement options. - Trying ERPNext

We saw this with Plone, and now with Odoo. So now we need to find another alternative, one again.
Discord With Discourse
The people at should be embarrassed, if not downright ashamed, with their product and founder. Do not use the Discourse forum product or services. I can now recommend people instead consider using NodeBB, NOT Discourse.
At 2,000 and climbing - Success Setting Up Environment for Load-testing AWS Jitsi 1000 Video Users - Onward to 5000+ - However Jitsi fails at 650 users standalone all-in-one
I am working on a longitudinal series of projects that heavily involve the use of Jitsi, especially in educational settings. This is for large scale environments that have highly demanding loads, and are intended as Zoom replacements in the USA and worldwide. This is just one of a number of components. Today was great to finally reach the 1,000 simulated video users load test basic baseline. Next goal is 5,000+, and then adding in additional features and still trying to keep it all working on this scale (recordings, transcriptions, closed captioning, intricate chat options, complex permissions managements, file management, and much more). Great things happening!
Microsoft Mandated Open Source Training
A poster at Microsoft indicating the "Do MORE with Open Source" and "Complete required OSS training"... Apparently Hell has frozen over???
Wordpress Versus Plone 5
You may have seen my various postings about the decline of Plone sine 5.x. A recent solicitation email prompted a revival of our disappointment and real issues and challenges we're dealing with as we try to find a platform to migrate to from Plone 5.x.
