I appreciate the feedback. We do care about our existing customers, as you can see by our constant efforts to listen to them and improve our product line in response.
The value you have in the owned extension is still worth something, and really this offer doesn't change that. There is still an advantage for owning over leasing if you plan on using the extensions over time and don't want to be tied to the subscription.
You kind of want to have your cake and eat it too by owning the extensions outright and getting free updates and not having to pay the subscription.
