AFAIK yes, you're correct.bangkok wrote:However, the good news is... with the opensource version, it might convince regular hosting companies to offer to their customers LiveCode server as an alternative to PHP.
And users will be able to install themselves LiveCode Server on many cheap regular web hosting plans, am I right ?
In one of his chats during the Kickstarter campaign, Kevin clarified that he specifically chose to use the GPL for all engines, rather than using the more restrictive AGPL for the Server engine.
Under the GPL, most uses of LiveCode that we enjoy today could make use of the Community Edition, free-as-in-beer and free-as-in-freedom.
It would be great to see some hosting companies offering LiveCode Server preinstalled. Once the Community Edition is officially released, I'll be talking to at least one hosting company encouraging them to consider doing so.
