Using proprietary solutions goes against the people's interest, the solution might work now but can and will bite the users in the end.
When users are bound to the will of the Proprieters then the solution is damaged.
Proprieters are loyal only to pure profits and nothing else, everything honorable that seems to be good is just PR to increase prfitability.
I cannot support this move, even using the missleading prefix "free" in the meaning zero cost instead of respecting your freedoms is scumy worth of full condemnation.
I sincerly hope the company will change their marketing strategy or go bankcrupt.
I hope manjaro will survive and keep strong despite this horrible decisions.
EDIT: didn't want to trigger anybody, I just believe users rights should be preserved, also using free in context of price is for me unacceptable, I don't wish anyone to lose job I only seek to hurt the corporate body that does something I disapprove, I went little bit extreme and I am sorry.
