Hristo, for the sake of clarity, the original deal was only people on “Suite Subscription” would get Box#2 AND 3, everyone else, including Standalone Subscription holder simply got the two Cache Operators and nothing else AND this is the clincher, originally current license holder got absolutely nothing but screwed.
The “new” deal gives Standalone Subscription holder Box#2 plus the Cache operators only and current license holders can get box#23 recompiles to 2013 and the next version of max.
Box#3 is still Suite Exclusive, creating yet another “Tier of Max”
It is still not really anywhere near ideal but is better than it was.
irwit, that is exactly why so many people are upset. It only makes sense to an accountant and not of the user.
Most of us were under the impression that is was going to be a multi-year subscription benefit, it was what made the most sense to us the user. AD is segregating max yet again, into another set of users, the Standalone Users and the Suite Users. Loyalty gets you nothing, I have been a sub holder since they started doing subscription, now that isn’t good enough.
As we have all been stating elsewhere, if you want us to buy suites, create suites we will want to buy, but forcing us to buy shit we don’t need in order to get baseline product features is lame.
