David: Good point. Pulse seems to have changed pricing several times over the past year (different pricing when it was “fixed” at different times). So the problem for me is I have no idea what pricing will look like in the future (i.e. near future). And do they still respect legacy licences? Can they also upgrade to 4.7?
When pricing is ambiguous or confusing, then who cares what cool stuff you can do with it.
When you look at many of these blog solutions, they’re just too pricey for the average user. And to see that Pulse charges a sign up fee is very unusual. I thought sign up fees had gone the way of Netscape.
The only blog solution I would consider is Armadillo, even then I’m reluctant to rely on third party for a solution.
I bought RapidCart quite recently, and though I haven’t needed any support from them, it’s frightening to hear that others haven’t had support tickets replied to in weeks.
