I have a question about this
Natethomas followed on to talk through the state of Kodi's finances - sponsors, donations, expenses - and our current non-profit/Foundation status.

How does the future look for Kodi , will Kodi still be free "open source".
Because with Krypton 17, you guys took a major leap, and with all the new features and improvements it must be a "full-time job" for a lot of the "TK".
And the "future" is not stopping, and i think its safe to say, that Kodi can hold its own against a lot of the paid "media center" software, i have a lot of the "expensive" Media Centers, but i rarely use them, because Kodi is just so much easier.

Sure i miss the Blu-Ray menu support, but i think "hope" its only a matter of time before Kodi has full Blu-Ray Support.
But again its probably a very time consuming and you need "TK's" who know how to make/add it, i do not know if Kodi has "TK" all ready with the know-how.
I ofc hope it will stay free of charge "open source" but since i have paid a small fortune, for my other "Expensive software" which i never use, i could just as well pay for Kodi and stop spending money on software i never use.

I ofc Donate to Kodi, when ever, i have some spare "change".
I hope my reply is readable/understandable and i think i got all the spelling "buff's"
If something looks like rubbish let me know and ill correct it.
Thank You
And keep up the good work
