A lot already did, buy I will quote Alex again:
“Yes it will definitely stay free and never be crippled by stupid fremium or whatever. “
The max 150 dpi export IS doing exactly THAT - CRIPPELING the software, making it absolutely useless for me.
I know, none of us can make guaranties, but the reason I started to use this, was because it was free and simple to use, great to teach my students in my board game design class. I was completely cool with a pro version with advanced features. But the paywall is a downright dirty, greedy and dumb move.
So, a goodbye it is from me too. I hope your new money making plan does not fare well (and suspect it does not).
