Would that be a commercial edition as a purchased add on;
or are QNAP partnering in pfsense?

We expect pfSense® software to be commercially available in the Virtualization Station by early second quarter, 2018.

The issue with IPv6 jokes is that almost no one understands them and no one is using them yet.

This is the beginning of the end of the pfSense. The changed licensing model has already shown that pfSense's commercial interests predominate. Now pfSense steers more and more to where you can also smell the gold.

Sometimes it's hard to sit silent to such "smart" statements.

I fail to see how partnering with QNAP to offer pfSense on their appliances is beginning of the end but maybe you know better. According to you, expanding market is beginning of the end.

pfSense always had commercial interests, how is that bad? It's what keeps the development going. Licensing model? License changed to Apache 2.0, a well known and established open source license.

Now pfSense steers more and more to where you can also smell the gold.

I'm afraid to ask what you meant by this. I'm not sure I want to know either. On a serious note, if you don't have anything nice to say then it's probably better to keep it to yourself. This forum doesn't exist so you can vent.
