I cannot find any documentation as to the difference between the open source and the paid version. Shouldn’t that be defined somewhere? Or at the very least, shouldn’t there be a “Features” page that tries to explain what MTOS does? Pretty much every other piece of software I have seen has a Features list.

Also, I do not see any link from this website to the MT forums. That seems like a good source for “supplemental documentation.” So:
