REALBasic is now XOJO? When did this happen? I’ve been away for some time from realbasic but this is just weird.
I was a big time RB user from version 1 through version 3.something. I don’t understand the weird name. It makes no sense to me at all.
Also, the licensing is strange now as well. Now it’s yearly? Is that correct?
I remember back in the day when the RB forums were buzzing with conversation. Seems like a ghost town here now. Is this new business model working?
I was going to purchase a new version of RealBasic but I’m not sure I will since it appears I can’t actually purchase a version/copy… not keen on this yearly licensing scheme. I liked the old licensing where you could just buy a copy of RB and make programs all you wanted for as long as you wanted. They used to have a hobbyist (non-commercial) pricing structure as well back in the day.
And charging for plugins and all that as well…wow… must have had some major corporate philosophy change over at realsoftware or something. It’s gone from a really cool company that really promoted it’s product and tried to provide a ton of support with a massive user base that was active as heck on the forums to like some weird company catering to corporate customers charging for everything with like 5 guys talking to themselves on the forums.
Very strange. Oh well, I need to go find my old version 3.something and re-install that again and figure out how to get onto the old RB forums.
