Bye, and thanks for the fish

It’s, “So long, and thanks for all the fish!” And unless you can do a double 360 back flip while passing through a smallish ring suspended above the pool, I remain unimpressed.

Since retiring I have been “freeloading" with the Community edition as a hobbyist, my only LC uses being for personal use, and maintaining admin and operating software I wrote for a not-for-profit sporting organisation, and occasionally contributing bug reports. I can well understand the need for LC to move to a profitable basis, and I would be happy buy a plan if it made sense for our use, but there is no way my NFP association can afford US$1000 every year - or even one year (we would use 3 platforms, and not even the Server is thrown in with the desktop platforms). And a Starter Kit that means the app would stop working when I pass on (I have been around since Hypercard day 1) is an insult. Seems to me the hobbyist use of LC has come to an end. A great pity, but I guess times move on.
