How can the devs for TrueOS afford Discourse?


Looking at the pricing of discourse it would cost TrueOS devs $100, $300 or a custom price per month depending on what plan they have chosen. If TrueOS does not make money, how can it afford such an expensive platform to use? Am I missing something?

EDIT: I figured out that it is 100% FOSS and it can be installed on your own servers.


Everything is expensive!.. That’s why I like to donate money to the project whenever I can. Can you imagine trying to buy Hard drives, RAM, servers, etc on a thing that doesn’t make money?.. You would have to depend on sponsors, and community donations.
