And a big round of applause goes to … THE SKETCHUP TEAM! (or rip them off and scarper AKA ‘Trimble Inc’).
Welcome to the club of 'Screw as much money out of people as we can (no free stuff here!) '. ‘Trimble Inc’ are trying out Adobe business model of subscription based software.
Another ‘Subscription’ to add to the others that make you pay hand over fist instead of being able to pay outright for a feature.
‘Trimble Inc’ ditched the free version (as there wasn’t enough people paying $695 (usd) ) for what passes as a laugh a minute (because if you don’t you will create a new thing to do with an actual window) ‘Web based’ junk.
So here we go again, ‘Trimble Inc’ got rid of ‘free users’ and now trying to screw money out of us with a subscription to a VR in app purchase.
Maybe we should alphabetise an error what Alphabet did in selling this program off, I don’t think i’ll trust Alphabet (Google) products again.
‘Trimble Inc’ is doing everything it can for their stock price, not the user!
Again, a big hand of applause!
