What? Is this a take on SAS?
I'm not sure what you mean by SAS, but it's about subscription licensing agreements, where you rent something instead of buying it, mainly because they won't sell it to you. It was once just software, but now it's hardware, music, movies, or anything.
SAS means 'Software As a Service', which is basically paying yearly fees for the service instead of just buying it. I own Microsoft Word/Excel on my PC and it will work fine for my home use for years. But I could also subscribe to Microsoft 365 and pay yearly fees, and lose the software when I stop paying. There are advantages--non-stop upgrades and support.But you may not be able to get access to your favorite movie or music when they decide to pull it from all the subscription services. If you owned the DVD you'd be fine.It can get ridiculous such as when Toyota decided to start charging a yearly fee to allow the remote start button on their key fob to continue working.
Got it. Thanks both!
...except that it's usually written SaaS.
