Re: Odoo v9 Community and Enterprise editions

I can only agree with Anders.   What happens in next version and future
road-maps? Another Compiere or Openbravo? I can agree that any company
needs a good business model and to make money. But in this case the risk
is to remove what is truly unique about Odoo and basically one of a kind
in ERP.  I hope Odoo will continue  as true open-source, build on
different, smarter and more aggressive business models compared to
competitions. Continue to use a strong community for crowd founding,
development and testing. I am not sure if one more Compiere or Openbravo
will be the model for success and to make a difference in the ERP world.
