Firstly I think the work you guys are doing is fantastic and the support base is amazing.
I recently developed an app for windows for my wife's Physical Therapy business because nothing could do what she wanted.
This was fine but had limitations like using it at home, security and maintenance.
I ported it into a web format but I used Real Software Web Edition which essentially uses CGI.
I am now consulting with many business contacts to create a general business management suite much like the Phreesoft thinggy that was recently posted on.
They are all blown away so far and are now talking about converting their data into my system.
Speaking to some associates (that offered to invest) I mentioned I would like to open source it.
They freaked out on me.
So my questions would be...
1/ Considering the application, is open sourcing a good idea?
2/ I understand it would raise my profile but would it be commercial suicide?
3/ Does anyone have any advice?
I really appreciate any time you guys give me regarding this.
