> What if they move to a $99 per month (build box)/$49 per month (Adobe)/€160 per year (bitwig) model?
Heh! Then I'm out. I hate the world slowing moving into a subscription based thing, where nobody owns anything yet continue to pay for everything.
I can't see that happening, otherwise Scirra would have charged for exporters and the like.
I wish some softwares had a lease or rent a day option. There's a lot of software i bought or subscribe to but rarely use (Maybe once every couple of months). Would much rather "rent" it for a day or week. Monthly subscription seems way to long, even if you can unsub. If i just needed a software to use if for a quick fix, convert, whatever a one time pay, or rent for a day licence would fit a lot of software.
Maya for example. Full Maya subscription costs. €242/Month .. that's way to much for something I use maybe 2 days per month. For professionals working with it full time i can understand, but for people just need to use it every now and then it's way too much.
