Well,

Seems like all DNN has to do is gobble up all the decent 3rd party module providers and force us all, ultimately, to purchase their system for 2 GRAND.

Why shouldn't we now be thinking this way? Isn't that their intent when they 'take out' a vendor (or their products) and put them in their pay-only version of their product?

Surely i am not the only one concerned about the specter of this transaction...

Robert,

I was just working on my own thread on this subject, but I think I'll join yours instead.

So from now on if I want to use their Open-DocumentLibrary module, I can no longer buy it on Snowcovered for $175.00 and install it on Community Edition. I'll have to spend $2,000.00, at least, for Professional Edition.

This was one of the best File Managers for DNN and I feel like it's being taken away from me.

I hope the DotNetNuke Corp will reconsider and continue it as a stand-alone module.

VERY SAD!

This is the most blatant “shot across the bow” for the Community version.  Obviously, DNN is focused on widening the gap between versions and forcing community developers (the same developers that helped put DNN on the map) into one of the paid versions. Taking the modules off the market is crossing the line IMO. When DNN announced the Pro version I questioned how long it would take before this type of practice too place.

It began with two separate platforms and feature sets, then the purchase of Snowcovered, now the elimination of the two best modules on the market, unless you move to a paid version.
It is time to let DNN know how the “Community” feels, find other modules, or find other platforms to base our development. Trust me, we have to sell a DNN install, verses so many other platforms available. With the lack of competent and/or compliant E-commerce modules, the further divide in DNN code bases and the elimination of proven modules for the Community version, DNN is drawing the line in the sand. We will be faced with hard choices if they do not change course.
I wish I was shocked, but I am amazed.

While it is perfectly understandable that the Corp is trying to acquire IP rights from 3rd party  vendors we can only encourage those companies out there to not jump on that train.


Cheers,

Glad to see I'm not the only one that looks at it this way.
