@schnnmbr @bolvyk @Martin Bay @echampagne@arpowers agreed with all your points.
My thoughts is its the way they have implemented the DMS, Wasnt much consideration for all its existing customers. Ive built Ecommerce site on PL and fear what DMS will do to it as there is so many glitches and issues they should done more a Beta version as its a huge jump from framework 2.0 to DMS with little support.
Ive spent loads of cash and time making PL work ive still not made my money back. Im now having to pay more for a subscription on DMS, that is still not fully supported with all the PL store products .
Ive tried to be patient but clients cant wait, Im looking to move to another platform now PL was great framework but now lost me money.
Check the comments in the Forum which is back online.

@arpowers @Mindtrain @daryldyer I agree from the subscription base model but to introduce it when existing customers have already adopted the old structure. Thsis change completely changes us freelance developers cashflow forecast and now have to consider our options wether to continue and adapt or explore other options.
@arpowers @daryldyer Winter 2012 and yes was a plus member.
@arpowers Taking on board what people have said I feel that PL is great platform and ive even recommended it to friends.
Problem ive got with the new pricing is the amount ive invested PL framework, support ,sections plugins and themes I also spent many hours learning PL platform. I think if software has an update such as Iphone with IOS all future updates are compatible with previous Iphone's. In this case your saying to all of us that have invested into PL Licences' we now have to start from beginning again which is causing most of us to consider and looking else where at other frameworks.
Not only have I lost money and time waiting for the DMS to launch ive now got to find more money to use new DMS platform.
Really annoyed, I wish that PL announced this subscription base months ago.
