  1. I would like to say that I am quite pleased with the choice to modify the pricing structure. I am on board again.... Well done.
  2. As I have stated before, I have no problem paying for a product as long as it is a fair price and fits my needs. However, paying for a "service" when all that is provided is a "program" rubs me the wrong way, especially when promises were broken. And I understand some need tech support.

That being said, if there are any future compatibility issues with 1.4.111 are we to be stuck with those and forced to the subscription model?
  5. I have been reading all this with interest and a taste of distain. In general, I agree that BTSync has broken promises with the capabilities of its current release 2.0, but that is nothing new. Even in development many feature requests were promised and never delivered (even a year after the promise). The sad part is that this time BTSync has now taken away something people have become accustom to. This is typical marketing/political methodology to make people pay for things they previously had not instead of instilling a feeling of having to do without. Is it ethical? I guess that all depen
