Some waves as they finally break on shore as they used to.

Voices are being heard, that the perpetual beta state has never justified the launch of half-ready products on the market. Software should again be as it used to be, a final packaged good and turn key application ready and reliably performing for professional use.

Remember the days before the internet and the Apple store became a reality? When software came ready made in packages? When it didn’t take months after you purchased the software for it to be tweaked so you could start using it after another purchase of version 2.0? When software was financed by its price tag and not by in-app added purchases and advertising. When customers were respected, instead of trading their data behind their backs, stealing their address books and reporting every push of a button to third parties, all while you were harassed with facebook likes and evaluations buggers? Affinity Designer seems to come from such former times. It’s good software brought to completion before it hits the shelves and it comes without loop holes – something, I haven’t seen in a long time. Thanks. Whatever you put out next, I’ll buy it.
