SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

On this link http://www.apps4rent.com/sharepoint-2013-features-comparison.html it is mentioned that community site are avialable inside; SharePoint Foundation 2013, SharePoint Server 2013 Standard & SharePoint Server 2013 Enterprise.

While inside this http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219805.aspx link it is mentioned that community site are NOT available inside SP foundation

“Community Sites are available in SharePoint Server 2013, but not in SharePoint Foundation 2013. However, discussion lists and Web Parts are still available in SharePoint Server and SharePoint Foundation if you want a light-weight discussion experience on your SharePoint sites.”?

So is Community sites available inside SP2013 foundation ?

If TechNet says no then it's most likely no. TechNet is run by Microsoft so it would be the authoritative resource in this situation.
