To those few people who have posted comments I apologize for it taking so long for me to approve them. It seems that WordPress is only sporadically sending me moderation notifications (even though I turned off moderation because I installed reCaptcha.)
And speaking of reCaptcha it seems that the spam is getting through anyway (I don’t need any designer handbags, thank you.)
Back to the drawing board!
Eric Ligman has been teasing us for several days now over a big announcement to be made on New Year’s Day. Well, the big announcement is “Open Value Subscription” which he describes as “lease-like” but not an “…actual lease.”
At the end of the term clients can “continue the subscription, buy out the subscription to own the licenses, or to end the subscription.”
So if the client ends the subscription do they have to stop using the software? If not, why would they want to continue the subscription? Sounds like a lease to me. When you lease a car and the lease is up you have to either extend the lease, buy the car, or turn it in.
There will be four webcasts to explain this new program: January 10th @ 9:00AM, January 17th @ 9:00AM, January 23rd @ 8:00AM, and January 29th @ 11:00AM (all times Pacific). I’m very interested to hear what other people in the community think of this.
