It certainly will be interesting if Adobe gets into hardware.
Otherwise one has to consider that somehow Pixelmator and Affinity are surviving with really low buy prices.
Perhaps smaller companies will still do OK and it's relative behemoths like Adobe that are having issues.
In fact Adobe had issues with the buy now upgrade and pay model which is why they switched.
Pixelmator's solution was a new version called Pro requiring a new buy.
Maign KeyFlowPro also was to release a new version requiring a new buy.
It really looks like software that doesn't go subscription will dispense with upgrades but go to low buy and buy again model.
Others will be buy but require support renewals to keep getting upgrades.
I really don't see this heading to fewer choices so much as new business models.
The buy once own forever is being done by (some) hardware companies. That's not shutting out other companies, with other business models though because each model affords a low entry price. That'll be the common denominator.
