Sorry Ahmed but if I follow your logic you can say "how odoo let their product on the market for free they could make a lot of money making people paying for using it"

In fact this is what is a capitalistic model while open source is more a collaborative business model... you don't pay for using the software, you pay for having services like hosting, fine tuning, customization, bug fixing, training, migration...

thinking like you do, i just wonder why you're not working on SAP our any closed sources software... And I don't say that I'm against paid app (even if I'm not convinced) I'm for added value paid services...

so we can't be disruptive adopting the rules that we want to break... community is here to help to make Odoo a better product and widely adopted...

I think that the first point of Nhomar was that they were using a community mailing list for adverstising not community work or apps... They were not the first ones to do that but anyway this is definitely not the place for this from my point of view...

even for the great paying apps it should be another mailing list for communication about it...

my two cents that doesn't grant for a free beer ;)

I got your opinion,
You can see the positive part (everyday, there is a new Odoo app),

Actually, I know your apps, and I asked myself before, how you let module like "IFRS" as free, you should market and collect money regarding module like that, that what Odoo did :) :)

Anyway, my opinion is everyone market what he wants and everyone has the options to pay or not

The good work market itself :)

I think Ahmed isn't the first one who publishes or will publish paid apps, there are many paid apps on Odoo store based on AGPL, So why many persons don't accept the idea!!

My point is not "Publish paid or not publish paid" that's fine for me (we will do it in some moment).

My point is use this lists to promote an unfinished job, not public which is clearly a fake marketing in a set of features that clearly will sell an incorrect approach to end customers and other people around community.

I mean, I can not say by myself I will rewrite a paid interface for a backend "Not technically prepared to manage such situation" with only one man without introduce A LOT of bugs in all the client, it is technically impossible, then say that you will charge people for that it is not real markets This is "misleading advertising" and I think we have the dutty to say our technical PoV (well I think I have the duty to do that to ot generalize).

If somebody comes to this list new I do not want people reading that "there is a mobile interface available for 10 dollars and Odoo, SA is too expensive", I want they read the good options and the bad options.

As I said, may be in some point it will be good, but for that date, v9.0 is available, and compare "less expensive" between full featured integrated mobile interface vs. this one, "I prefer" pay enterprise (if it is a real need).

Then... put some screenshots do not makes you have a product, make a negative comment like mine because I am not agreed with your marketing does not make me a bad guy.
