Export possible?

Does LR have the capability of exporting out all your images, edits and metadata in some kind of format other programs can use such that if you were forced to move to another program you wouldn't lose a decade of work?

The idea of non-destructive editing becomes a lot less attractive if you are forced to pay Adobe a monthly fee for the rest of your life for the right to access your photos even if you do nothing with them...

There's a name for that kind of program... "Ransomware".

I do not want to have my photos held hostage because 10 years ago I made a lot of complicated edits to a raw file that exist only in LR, in a format that no other program can replicate.

Perhaps this debate is a good one as it raises awareness of the risk that Adobe could choose to do this at any point....
