Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Commercial Use

get in contact with dianemo if you need a commercial license.
I don't need a commercial license.  I plan on using LinuxMCE for home use. 

I'm a programmer who has been using unix and perl for 10 years and finally have a little time on my hand to work on my home automation.  I am reviewing many software packages and feel like LinuxMCE has many benefits.  However, as the OP stated in a very rude manner, I'm not sure I want to spend more time on administration than I have too. 

I did notice that there hasn't been a release in a few years (or maybe I am wrong on this).  When I saw the response regarding the license issue, I just thought it might be nice to get some background so I would understand the development better.  I don't want to start using something that might not be around in the future or won't continue to be developed because of licensing issues.  I'm also a newb when in comes to licensing :-)

Those expectations are quite lofty at this thoroughly understand why you need to have some background of the projects history.  You can start by looking at pluto home's ailing website.

Read through the PPL on their website and consider that we are still focusing on freeing ourselves from that license.  As a businessman I'm sure you can see how, as long as we're operating under that license, we're basically limping around on one leg, no chance to run until we're free of those shackles.  Then go look at our codebase and see just how large and complex it is, you can imagine that with only a handful of us here working to accomplish these things, it takes a considerable amount of time.

New to this community.  I tried the pluto website and you are correct in that it is ailing and has many dead links. 

Can you give me the synopsis of what you are trying to say about the license and how you are trying to free yourselves from that license?  Sorry if this is covered elsewhere.
