Terminating all of our Elasticsearch clusters at work today, and boy does it feel good.

@JosuGZ Basically. They've switched to the SSPL, which is not a FOSS-compliant license.

@sbanwart What are the biggest problems?

BTW old versions can still be used with the old license right?

@JosuGZ Yes, old versions are still licensed under the old license. The problems with ES start with a complete lack of security in the free version, and it goes downhill from there. Too many issues for me to attempt to enumerate here.
