thanks a lot for the feedback and your perception. privacyIDEA is not advertised as a free-of-charge solution (although it still is) but as an open source solution.
I think you are mixing up free beer and free speach. We are totally emphasizing on the later which is the far more important aspect for us, for enterprises and the whole world.
Having this note does not make it less free as in free speach. It might however remind the user of the fact that it does not come as free as in free beer. A company using privacyIDEA will always have to pay someone, to have the system up and running. Could be the longer time of the own employees or the additional time of any external consultant.
If there was a big enterprise, that would be annoyed by this note, I am wondering why this big enterprise would not
a) write it’s own web ui
b) integrate privacyidea into its workflows and portals using the REST api.
In case of b) – which I see very probable here (if the big enterprise does not only want to use privacyidea as a free-beer-dropin-replacement for RSA SecurID) – then the helpdesk users of said big enterprise will never see this note again.
