@ginoginelli The expectation is for a decent software company to have a long term vision for their development efforts - a real product life cycle.
As this roll out is happening, Pagelines people themselves do not know if this release is a Pagelines 3.0 or a totally separate product line - just read their comments and all the whining and confusion this roll out is creating (instead of the excitement). I bet @arpowers just recently attended a product launch seminar or something and is trying to implement the new marketing spin in their business model.
Wasn't Pagelines 2.0 the ultimate drag and drop system when it was promoted?
Oh now DMS is the "new" drag and crap thing???

@chriscct7 Are you from Pagelines? Or is this just your interpretation by reading between the lines??? It would be nice if you were identified properly? @arpowers who is identified as Moderator does not seem to visually approve or jive with your comments.

@watchbill I had the same experience. Despite owning a Dev Plus license for over a year, I still had to purchase themes from ThemeForest. I had better success with a $7 theme from the Warrior Forum. When I finally got my first Pagelines site up and running and dorking around with CSS then comes DMS???
I hope DMS addresses real WYSIWIG so no more CSS dorking around.
@davekeys Comparing Pagelines to a Range Rover is totally out of context! Software like Pagelines has a software development life cycle - just like Wordpress which progresses from 1.0, 2.0,3.0 etc. The higher the version number, the better and the longevity only reflects the vision (wisdom and INTEGRITY) of the designers of the software.
Upgrades do not mean free either so software developers do deserve money for their efforts or there would be no incentive to develop better products.
My point is Pagelines owes its customers a long term vision for their software. Software developers should not be bouncing around their designs based on whims and the latest seminar they attend on how to make more money from their customers.
@chriscct7 In other words, anyone who invested on Pagelines 2.0 PRO prior to June 15 is screwed. DMS should just have been Pagelines 3.0. Again, this shift to DMS is just marketing spin to fleece more money like what "gurus" are teaching out there on making more money. It is sad because this short sightedness only cannibalizes the existing customer base.

@arpowers "Every case is different, worst case you'll get a big discount." where did you find "FREE"???
RIP Pagelines 2.0 - What a SHORT product life cycle??? I thought these guys had a vision???
@Sheila @AdrianCastro @David Dabney Perhaps all the people who are excited did NOT know they will have to pay AGAIN, discount or not - It IS ANOTHER INCOME STREAM.
@David Dabney I agree with David. Moving everybody to another platform even before the Pagelines documentation is done - is terribly disappointing. A product that has unfinished documentation is a product unfinished. If not for live support, Pagelines is totally useless because documentation sucks. I guess getting a new product every 2 years makes money - as the gurus teach out there, regardless if you make a good product or not.
Everyone on Pagelines framework should be grandfathered into the DMS without paying for new licenses.
