darthcamaro writes “SugarCRM markets itself as a professional open source company and this week released version 6 of its Sugar platform. But the main new feature is a new user interface that isn’t available to users of the community version — it’s only available to paying users. No they don’t claim to be open core either, they claim it’s all open source, even if you have to pay for it. ‘”Open source doesn’t mean free and was never really meant to mean free,” Martin Schneider, senior director of communications at SugarCRM, said. “Open source runs through everything we do, it enables us to be transparent and gives customers more power. We are an open source company and it’s why we’re better than proprietary companies.”‘”
