not sure if it's the right thread for continuing this very interesting  discussion.

but what answer the community could give without knowing the targeted profitability of Odoo SA which probably depends on the ones of the venture capitalists that put millions $ in Odoo SA

Compared to v8 we have a big increase of top menus and blue link of "Dashboard" (for eg:

I am agreed (not against your point).

But an issue should be more useful than a generic complain (well that's my opinion)

On my side in an organized way I tested several features (almost all community ones) on new sales and purchase processes and all of them where answered (even if not solved because some conceptual differences between my point of view and theirs).

My point is that if you have specific complains about usability on community edition, instead say "it is because the enterprise" In you plac I should prepare a document with all points and try to 1.- Solve my self. 2.- Discuss one by one with odoo SA.

IOH (commercially and strategically speaking), completly OT, you can stop read here if you do not want read a flame.

We (as community) are the gulties of push odoo SA to close more and more... and our customers also, just because we "think" we deserve the "community edition" we have years fighting against a mega-monster which is the "investment", IMHO if every single one of us buy and enterprise or a partnership in the community Odoo will have better profit and better income.... but now the bad is done... simply Buy closed or Live on community....

And listen well, I am talking about "We" not complaining about others I am part of this community and I supose I made some errors also.

Fabien was very clear, he changed his mind a lot since the begining, and being honest, may be me in Fabien's shoes should do the same.

When you invest millions in something and simply people think they "deserve" my job just because "yes, I do!" I should take the same position.

Today we continue working so hard to stay open, but mantain >500 modules + OCA one's + community Odoo's edition needs to be paid, and I do not find other way that sale the "right" to receive support and access....

Do you know another way?

And read carefully, it is not a matter of open or closed (I think Open) it is a matter of "who pays for what and when".
