zwetan I am not sure why you telling me all these! but still I will play along!
zwetan in the context of Google for paid products
I recently started using Google's Firebase service and am on the Spark Plan which is Free! Their support was excellent. Not only they helped me to set the best database rules, they also helped me to set up my own trigger functions, which is in typescript, according to my requirement! Similar xp with their Google & Firebase Analytics, brilliant & its all for free! what more should I ask for!
zwetan especially when it is 1 person or a very small group of people behind the product given away for free
Exactly, that's why I said, right now, for me the paid version with support is the best option and will never opt for an open source for my projects, because of that uncertainty. Playing hide & seek with milkman, fireman, postman, policeman & all those men who vanish into thin air, is a risky business!
zwetan why do you expect to have support and assistance given away for free for a long run?
Because of AIR & its future. If this was a project for Haxe, i would have said "Bring it on Baby!"
zwetan my other point is that I find pretty unfair to ask that amount of support
(eg. "please assist me and guide me step by step on what I have to do to make it work")
from a somewhat "small" open source project
we should be like those aliens right?
