It's a bit tongue in cheek: a lot of companies will hear about Slack and then look for an open source version, because free, or want to host the service themselves. Being the open source version of Slack will get some attention but won't be enough for any serious company deployment.

Slack's terms for non-profits are also a bone of contention for some.
