    Default Is NetObjects still alive at all?

    Their latest updates on Facebook, Twitter and their own blog is from 2015. According to Facebook, their support is not responding anymore.

    What happens with the rights to Koken if they're dead?

    Is it too risky to fork it on GitHub to continue the development for it?

    There's some discussion of that on Reddit.

    Why do you think someone's ownership for software changes if they no longer support their web site. One has nothing to do with the other??? Why should someone give away their rights to their property when not enough people buy it. In other words why should an owner reward people for not buying their software by giving it away when they wouldn't buy it??? I sure the hell wouldn't give anything away when everybody holds out waiting for it to become free. I would throw it into a dumpster first.

    Today you can throw Netobjects in the dumpster

    In my view even opening the source would not change anything. You still need to find skilled devs who would like to do something with it. For example Serif had WebPlus that was propably more sophisticated than Netobjects, it even already had mobile support. But to make it modern in todays terms they have to rewrite the program and they have different plans. So they announced officially to drop it, sold it cheap for a limited time and then stopped offering it. That was honest and ok for me. A strategic decision and they do not try to sell a no longer developed software. Look at the Netobjects site... they still praise a software that is useless for most people and no longer developed for years. To me it looks like the owner wants to catch "stupids" from time to time.

    About Koken I cannot make judgements. From comments it seems to cover a need with no current competition. It would have made most sense to make Netobjects Fusion at least Freeware with officially no further development and concentrate on Koken and develop it further. It seems both products are in dumpster now (Netobjects still sold officially).

    NOF is still a usable software. So is a lot of other older software. I can make a quick and dirty 1 or 2 page website with NOF when I can't make one by creating a .doc file and saving as a an html file. Not everybody always needs to make hot shot super tech website trying to sell something. In fact all the sites made by the newest software are crap. I believe it is content that attracts visitors to sites, not super fly super high tech gimmickry. I really laugh when I hear all these website builders praise the sites they make and then they can figure out why nobody is coming to their sites. They don't blame their super high tech design not working like they thought it would, they blame Google. So they then start modifying their super high tech site to Googles liking. I am sure glad I don't make websites for a living. The whole website industry is garbage.
