Agree with this, although the subscription model also makes things more affordable for a lot of people.

The issue I would have is: when your subscription runs out, do you get your data back? Subscriptions on Adobe CC, for example, don't have this issue, because you save your files to your hard drive anyway. But all these online-only services have the issue of losing access when your subscription runs out - or when the service just randomly shuts down one day without warning.

Adobe blocked Venezuela - suddenly all these subscriptions became worthless. Which pretty much confirms that corps can make whatever excuse they can to shut your subscription down, money or not.
