Didn't there used to be a detailed table that compared the features between Lite, Desktop and Enterprise versions....
Seems the new website has gone more for glitz than substance :(
It was a point of discussion between a few of us, and to what LITE did or not not offer (besides multi-platform) as compared to Desktop...
The only thing that came to mind was ability to save as XML and VCS format, and remote database (ie. other than SQLite)

Thanks for finding that archive link Michel...
So... if you buy TWO licenses (macOS and Windows) for $99 each, as opposed to the $299 Desktop version.
For me (your situation may be different)
Have little need for Linux, and no need for Raspberry Pi
Have all the tech support I can give or get right here on the forum
VCS is not really an issue, but XML is (and that should be mentioned on this comparison chart)
Database server support. not required, SQLite is fine for what I need
So for me, I'd be paying another $101.00 for the ability to save in XML format
When comparing Desktop & Lite licenses here are the key differences:
A full Xojo Desktop license allows you to activate it on 2 Mac, Windows and Linux machines at one time, and allows you to compile/build for Mac, Windows and Linux. The full Desktop license include database support for PostgreSQL, MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server and ODBC.
A Xojo Lite license allows you to activate on 1 machine at a time and will only compile for the chosen OS. Xojo Lite licenses do not allow you to save in version control formats (for use with systems like GIT and SVN) and only give you access to the SQLite database.
