Hi Mark,

I meant the barcode scanner only in this case because i think that is / can
be used for less "businessy" things (depending on what Businessy means)

I think if they brought out a couple of widgets every few months and added
some to Indy - for instance beacons in indy , fingerprint for business
that sort of thing.

I still think they should have a donation type page for the free community
we might bring in a few shekels from the open source comminity - but what
do I know?

We paid for MVC in business and got the Free Levure in community and
business,  which is probably better anyway it was designed by somebody who
had to scratch an itch.

What Business should really be is a dedicated person who helps projects
along and answers emails and chats in hours not days - fgets the team to
fix showstoppers
basically support not "knobs and Knockers"

look at the pricing here - the free version has everything the enterprize
version has at $98,000 less.
https://haxe.org/foundation/support-plans.html

Xojo's pricing is roughly teh same but it doesn't run out only the updates
do
https://www.xojo.com/store/
same for nearly all the others - only stop updates -

<pissing in the wind>
I will say it again and again and again and again and .........

Forget about community plus as such - bring out separate versions for
mobile that are £99 pounds and they don't run out but  updates do
Apple and Google are your best friends they keep moving the goal post  so
anybody serious will need the update to the latest version to compile.
Bring out a version that can only connect to sqlite not Mysql - that does
not deactivate after a year - if you bring out worthwhile upgrades they
they will come ......

 </pissing in the wind>
