Xander and ajgyomber, you're right on track with my goal. It's a marketing campaign really. It will essentially include basic features that come with the Vanilla dSS, and maybe a tweaked app here or there, but nothing spectacular.
My company only supports businesses (I have not worked for residential clients for a bit now), and this is just a kind way of giving back to my community (I love my home town, and hope to one day offer free IT services to those in need). I plan to restrict use to local residents only, through IP, web forms; city, zip, area code, and street. I feel like this will seriously narrow any clever 3rd parties from downloading it on their own. I am also a few months away from implementing this, and plan to work with Nick to further advance the idea and secure it so that there is no "Fiasco".
bertie40, while I understand your point of view, and appreciate your input. I do want to point out that providing dSS for free in any capacity, is providing it for free. It is not a mockery of our resales to do this if there is a calculated profit generated from doing so, which in my case, there is. Nick is aware of my intent, and I don't think he's insulted by my plan to use his software as a springboard in a marketing campaign (it creates even more exposure for him in fact). What's the difference between a free Vanilla dSS, and free CCleaner, PatchMyPC, Malwarebytes, etc., all powerful tools. If you want to get the value added features, you have to pay (something I am not offering locally, because I actually want to push residential work towards competitors who want the work).
I hope this clears up any confusion on the matter, but if not I would be happy to explain, and share my marketing campaign for those who are interested. Thank you, and I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving!
