As I was listening to episode 58 (or was it 59), Ian & Andrey were talking about Jetbrains forcing users of their downloadable software to move to a Saas model, and the backlash it caused, etc.
Nowadays, everything is moving to the Saas model. I can understand why it’s good from a creator point of view, as you get regular income. But Saas is being forced onto everything, even downloadable software. Photoshop is another example, as is most tools from Adobe. Users are vary of this, and Adobe faced a lot of complaints too.
Is this a good trend? Are we going to get a backlash from customers, who are being forced to pay for software they just paid for?
