* no disrespect, just a hoping outsider.
A great assurance would be that you kept a downloadable C2 and then kept upgrading C3, C4 etc in a stand alone app
Why can't you offer a C3 as a downloadable perpetual and still do subscriptions?
Just have 2 different pricing plans.
I realize in the long run you can make good income.
But how about offer a subscription that has bonus content or benefits that the stand alone exe doesn't
You can keep charging for upgrades to stand alone.
A subscriber gets access to all plugins
While a standalone has to purchase plugins
I just don't get why you would alienate potential customers as myself.
I know that new technology is arising such as Electron/Node.Js that allows a developer to code a stand alone exe but still have a web based app... the best of both worlds. An Electron App can communicate to a web server too.
Not sure what you use to code, but there must be a way to service subscribers and non-subscribers.
As I said before... I am a current Adobe CC subscriber, because I needed to for the freelance work I do.
I am eventually going to dump Adobe because I am spending money and getting nothing when I decide to cut ties...
I hate renting software.
You guys can do what you want... but you are throwing away money on potential customers
