My life is much easier now. Subscriptions is very easy to use, intuitive, includes great features, and I have confidence in Akeeba's ability to develop reliable solutions.
I purchased the full license but the free version offered enough features that I didn't have to upgrade. Happy I did, though. The value is great, their support is awesome, and I believe it's important to support their business.
One of the best decisions I've made this year.
