Most of the software on my computer is licensed using the subscription model.
I don’t buy software.
Not in the traditional sense.
I also don’t use any pirated software.
But that’s another conversation.
I appreciate the simplicity of the subscription model.
I can use software in the cloud.
Or I can run software on my desktop.
The subscription model works for me.
But as fate would have it.
I still have one app on my computer that’s licensed the good old fashion way.
I don’t enjoy upgrading it mostly because of the way it’s licensed.
If you want the new version.
You need to buy it again.
So every two years or so when there’s a new version.
If I want it.
I need to shell out several hundred dollars.
Even if you budget for it.
It’s still an inconvenience.
I don’t know about you but for me subscription software rocks.
For typically a low monthly fee you get software that is up-to-date, patched, maintained and supported.
I never have to worry about upgrading to the next big version.
I just incrementally update my way there through a built-in update mechanism.
I am always on the latest version.
And it helps me run a computer that is…
Always ready to go.
Ready to go for my next big idea.
Buying software sucks.
