Why can't you accept that software X is designed to work with Y and not Z.
When advances in X are designed to take advantage of Y and not Z, what you're really saying
is "Why isn't it free?". The reason is simple: Salaries have to be paid, and when there are enough changes to justify
a version change, the upgrade isn't free. That's ALWAYS been SD's policy.
You aren't blaming MS for changing and selling Windows though, are you?
And yet, Windows doesn't make it so that nothing will work with Windows 7, and then force me to download Windows 8 apps.
If there were an option to download SkinStudio 7, this wouldn't be a problem. Except, that option apparently doesn't exist.
Why can't I download SkinStudio 7? It would work with the version that I already have. Instead, they've updated it, which has rendered the programs that I DID purchase useless.
If MS did this... just made an app incapable of working unless you paid them more money for something you've already purchased... yeah. I'm sure I'd be complaining about it along with many others.
But that's not how it works.
I'm not asking for a free OD subscription here. I'm just asking for programs that I've purchased to be made available to me so that I can actually use them.
