In this time of crisis I can use my software that I bought and not to worry how to pay the subscription fees!
I hear you, I’ve been preaching this every chance I get ever since the whole subscription / SaaS idea came into being. Imagine not being able to pay the sub, and then finding that you now can’t earn with the tools you rely on.
As has been put starkly on show with our current predicament, we don’t live in a perfect world.
For me buying when I CAN AFFORD and I REALLY NEED is a common scene that we really start to lose! “Only 5$” a month is another way to live beyond our abilities - and we all see how this is so exhausting. And this is just the beginning - the next stage is cloud only software - the vendors will have the full control ! IoT is another step in this direction - any device will have a software that needs “update” to continue working and a subscription to continue “updating”!
