this looks like history repeating itself: back in 1999-2000 Red Hat
pulled the switch on their (whatever the name was) community edition,
trying to coerce users into paid RHEL subscriptions. No thanks back
then, no thanks today.
Luckily, the universe of FOSS distros is varied and competitive. Fork
them! Or better: join a distro with a better track record.
Ultimately, the ethics of the organization is determined by the ethics
of the individuals and it follows them wherever they go. This kind of
conduct seems to be engrained in that strain of DNA for more than two
decades, and you do not want to be anywhere near it. Bad apples.
