There are two terms you will often hear in the FOSS world, you might think they mean the same thing but you they do not.
Free as in beer and Free as in speech/freedom.
They sound like they are saying the same thing but they really don't.
Free as in beer, is getting something without payment. That is all it really means, you could try to find a deeper meaning in it, but you would be hard pressed to find one. This is what it means in the FOSS world too, if some one says 'Try Ubunt

Babble 3.0 Beta is now available, contact me if you wish to be apart of the beta. Below is the video showing off babble 3.0 and its abilities and differences. Babble 3.0 is also currently running on my site here. (video is still uploading, so it might take some time before its available for viewing).
I am alive, I don't mean to disappoint anyone if you are
I had a chance to use my talents to help a few local schools out with their IT dilemma (mostly fixing their old and donated computers to hand out to children who don't have one). So i was busy with this for a bit, and then i got sick (not with covid19, at least they told me it wasn't it, but it kicked my butt for about 5 days), but i am back now.

since i have some free time for the next several weeks, i thought i'd jump on in on babble 2.9/3.0 (more than likely be 3.0 finally).
but here is a quick video on the new look for babble. if you have followed the babble saga for the awhile, you will know i've never been quite happy with the layout of babble. it was archaic imho, mostly due to the original spec that babble was written under. i experimented with a "slack" like layout, but i wasn't too happy with that one either, that is why t

feature creep: i kept adding new and more features, instead of refining the ones already there.
After long consideration, I will be ending Babble Self Hosted in the near future. It wont happen immediately, I don't have a firm date, but I am looking at the second quarter of 2019 (sometime between march and end of may, probably closer to the end of may).
The reasons i have decided to do this cause the support load for babble self hosted is incredibly high, due to the installation requirements, the amount of self host clients who have moved to the chat service, the general decline in sa
