Resin "hobbyist" version[edit]

Caucho's own marketing materials describe Resin Open Source as a web server for "hobbyists". This isn't about "picking on" Resin, it's about accurately describing it. Especially if Caucho is going to do things like release performance metrics without explicitly saying whether they apply to the paid version or the version with caching ripped out. --❨Ṩtruthious andersnatch❩ 21:49, 27 February 2012 (UTC)

April 1st edits[edit]

I'm hoping that more slavish rewriting of the article is an April Fools joke but in case it isn't, I'm going to point out here that "crippleware or open core" is a false dichotomy; it matters not a whit whether the remaining functionality arrived at by disabling features is coherent enough to be called a "core" or is more haphazard, "open core" is simply a euphemism for crippleware.

Likewise, it's completely irrelevant what the performance or feature set of Apache or any other product is; there is no comparison with competitors that magically does away with the fact that Caucho has developed a product, marketed the product's features alongside claims about being open source, documented those features and included configuration options for them everywhere, and then crippled the product to remove those features so that when activated instead of working as described the product urges its user to enter into Caucho's sales pipeline and register for an "evaluation license" and loads of marketing spam. --▸∮truthiousandersnatch 03:16, 4 April 2013 (UTC)

Redaction[edit]

The whole article seems like a "copy and paste" of the commercial web of the product.

Especially the third paragraph sounds more like a response to criticism that a paragraph to explain the product. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.194.137.210 (talk) 21:59, 9 May 2013 (UTC)

I was about to say that this doesn't seem to be NPoV. -- Resuna (talk) 20:19, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

{{advert}} removed[edit]

All documentation is located at http://caucho.com/resin-4.0/ . Please refrain from editing a subject without attempting to understand it.

Given that we can't seem to retain even basic documentation of this topic that sounds insufficiently worshipful, like Caucho's own description of the purposes that Resin Open Source is suitable for, nor refrain from poorly-cited breathlessly promotional copy being introduced again and again, I have restored the {{advert}} template. --▸∮truthiousandersnatch 23:16, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
