You know you've really made it as a SAAS product when open source clones of it start to arrive.

While I'm a big fan of open source, I'm not sure this product is an ethical one. It seems to simulate Slack so much that it clones it, at least at face value. Is this okay? This opinion is not one I hold with the _most_ conviction, however... Does anyone have any other thoughts on the _matter_? (puns intended?)

Mattermost just released v1.0 of their open source slack alternative. Looks great, and has a lot of customizability.

How does this compare to Rocket.Chat (https://www.producthunt.com/tech...)?

I love this because while Slack is still going after consumers, Mattermost could run in the enterprise sector. Open Source is great, but really being able to install behind a firewall is even better. Run fast enough, and it would be easier for Slack to just buy you than to acquire customers one at a time.
