Thanks for sharing this information , I'm glad to see that XEU is communicating in public.
I understand that your priority this days are focused on the release of eCS 2.2 but I will like to suggest to discuss this topics on the near future:
- Time ago, there used to be some discussion on reducing the price of eCS for Students and individual (non-commercial) users. I thought that the idea was good but it seems it was archived.
- (or/and) Try to make some figure to allow adoption and use of eCS to new users, like making a more flexible VM demo instead of a DemoCD for individual/personal/non-commercial use only.
- Embrace open source and collaborate to open source project with confidence. In the past it was a loud secret that Mensys used to sponsor some of the open source development, but Mensys didn't want to show as sponsor like it was some kind of shame (personal opinion) to support open source.
- Improve the communication with the community (which you are already taking the first steps). I understand that there is a difference between a user community and running a company, but we should try to reach a common goal on the benefit of the platform and it's users.
So, that's all that came into my mind for future review.
