It is true that it is a very small amount a year per user, however it is 
also true that it is against the spirit in which Odoo (OpenERP) was 
created. O stands for Open source.

Personally, I think 20 euros per year per user makes a lot of money for 
a million users at the end of the year, for something that is based on 
Open Source ideals.

Call me a dreamer.
