This website seems to be the mouthpiece of Slysoft, and as such, Slysoft can do no wrong.
Seriously, Slysoft charge a pretty high amount already for there products, and raised the prices considerably 6 months ago (using the excuse of the weak dollar), by over 30% if memory serves.
So in one year, they have hiked the prices, and now they are going back on their lifetime updates policy, in favour of a 1 year subscription model. I mean, how much longer will this company exist for? Hollywood will eventually go after them, and take them out. I suppose they better make the big bucks while they can!
