What is FSMK's stand towards Shareware?


#1

Some shareware limit use to personal non-commercial purposes only but allows an individual to use the software completely for free.But purchase of a license is required for use in a business enterprise. Some shareware itself may be limited in functionality . Or it may remind you that donation would be appreciated. Or it may show ads to sustain itself.

Hi @amithraj! Thanks for the question.
As an organisation promote free as in freedom software only. Nothing in the middle. We do understand that individuals are forced to engage in the grey areas and we hope that each of us makes the right choice.
The problem lies in the fact that we are yet to come up business models to suit the changing market. Maybe it requires changing the idea of the market itself :slight_smile:
