The subscription lie?
1

There's still huge uproar against Adobe for moving to a subscription model, and I get - based on what it was before.
On the other hand, it seems to me that the other alternatives that shout "no subscription-free updates" is a bit of a marketing white lie.
In essence, if you want an updated software each year (and most do), you'd have to pay each year again (50-100$) in order to get the update. Yes, within the same year you'll get 1 or 2 minor updates on the house, but major ones will be charged for. I see this both in On1 and Luminar. Polarr just went subscription and others are probably on the way.

Don't get me wrong, subscription is a much viable model (and maybe the only one) for these companies, I just wish they all had some transparency and wouldn't try to hide it in false claims.
What do you think?
