Surprised about LogMeIn
I am among those surprised about LogMeIn suddenly going non-free. The one minor bit of good news:
One place I do IT for has a paid LogMeIn account, which has a few "free" computers on the account (the "free" ones don't allow for checking logs and so on but do allow remote desktop; the plan they have was short 3 computers, the next larger paid plan covered way more computers than they have). After reading about them cancelling free service with essentially no notice, I figured I better log in and check! There's a notice on the account page, if you have a paid account they are NOT cancelling the tacked on free computers, and you can still add and remove them as you wish as well.
Still, I don't think it's that cool to cancel with essentially 0 notice... and furthermore, LogMeIn working so easily for remoting into systems behind NAT gives it such an advantage over their competitors, that I doubt very many people would have found alternatives to LogMeIn even given a month's notice anyway.
