I would really like to keep this thread about my OP. Please do not hi-jack.
Right now KolabNow is implementing kolab17 features, so they are way ahead of your statement. Collabora is there, what was promised to the community 18 months ago. Shame on Kolab and you for trying to defend.
Kolab is picking up bate-and-switch selling tactics that is very common in the closed source world. Sad to see this direction in Kolab. I have seen this game before, many times.
