Terrible, just terrible.
Jesus H Christ. Is every single greedy vendor just switching to a subcription model to keep revenue figures up? What happened to buy once, pay 20% annaul maintenance to keep the product under support with the latest updates. Now, you pay 100% EVERY SINGLE YEAR, and the minute you stop paying, you lose access. Companies will literally go bankrupt eventually because of greed mentality. It's all the clouds fault. Never has there been a single, more focused attempt to fleece companies for all their worth by moving their 'services' to the cloud and moving everything to a subscription. I have nothing but contempt for this terrible path we're now all being forced towards.
