First, let me say that I fully support the subscription model for software and the predictable cash flow for developers. But I went looking for OF4 (which I guess is not released yet, I saw the subscription pricing for OM3 and it seems like a big disconnect. I could buy the pro version for $99, or subscribe for $99/yr. Since I’ve been using OM3 for at least three years, the “traditional” is at least 3x less expensive than the subscription.
Assuming this is the pricing structure of OM4, I think the take rate on subscription is going to be pretty low. I’m willing to pay the equivalent of 2yrs. So $99 to buy / 24 = $4/mo or $49/yr.
Just some feedback. Maybe I’m an outlier and everyone else is willing to pay $100/yr.
