Sorry, but I have to write this somewhere so my head does not explode
When AB announced that 1PW 6 for Windows will be subscription-only, everyone (at least it felt like that) where complaining about "another subscription" and were afraid that also all the apps for the other platforms were going that way. They demanded statements that the next version for Mac would also be available as standalone licensed. And they were all committing they were willing to pay "full price", just to get the standalone license.
And now? 1Password 7 for Mac is out and the Windows version is coming soon and will also have a standalone license option.
Are the protesters happy now? Of course not, because now the "full price" they claimed they were willing to pay, is too much and that AB should offer upgrade pricing. I mean WTF??? The last time someone paid for a 1Password upgrade was like 3 or 4 years ago.
People buy computers and devices for thousands of dollars, but are too stingy to pay 60 bucks for a tool that helps them keep their passwords and other valuables safe. And if they thought about that for a second, they would realize that those 60 bucks for ONE license for ONE platform would give them almost 2 years worth of subscription for ALL platforms.
They even would not need to use 1Password.com for their stuff if they don't trust that. They could still use iCloud, Dropbox and whatnot.
I totally get that "everyone is going the subscription route" thing. I'm in the same boat. But honestly, you have to pick which product is worth your money. You don't have to buy every subscription that comes your way. I pay for 1Password, Netflix (ok who doesn't), Spotify and Amazon Prime.
Yes, that's a lot of money, but those things either bring me joy, safe me money or keep my staff secure. It's money well spent.
So folks at AB, keep up the good work and don't let the whiners get you. You're doing great.
Sorry for the venting, it had to be done
I know the answer to my initial question is of course "no"
