Altium is killing off perpetual AD

(1/24) > >>

Analog:
Altium is killing the perpetual license and support for perpetual licenses. Altium has been putting new stuff into pro and 365 for a while so I guess this is to be expected.

ataradov:
Is there a link?

There was this not too long ago https://www.eevblog.com/forum/altium/altium-offers-perpetual-licenses-again/

Analog:
I learned about it from my Altium account rep. I don't feel right about posting his email. My subscription is about to expire so he was giving me information and options.

thm_w:
You realize there is a Pro perpetual license right? The price difference is nothing: https://www.altium.com/altium-designer/licensing

So you don't think they will say whatever is necessary to get you to renew your subscription?
If you get value out of the cloud features then pay subscription, if you are not, there is no need to pay it.

ajb:
There's been so much volatility in Altium's pricing and license models lately it's hard to keep track of.  I wouldn't be totally shocked if Renesas decided to go subscription-only, and that definitely fits with some of the language in their press release from a couple months ago.  But that acquisition was only just executed yesterday (5/30), apparently, and I wouldn't expect anything like that to happen quite so soon.  If you plan to keep using Altium for the next year or so, then keeping your subscription active is probably a good move in case they pull a VMware and suddenly decide to stop offering subscriptions for perpetual licenses.  Or if you're okay with whatever version you're on currently, you can just stop paying for support and keep your perpetual licenses as they are going forward.
