I have used and loved Nik V3 for some time. However, I find it insulting that I now have to wait over 2 minutes the first time I start up V3 each day for the nag message to arrive about buying V4.
Making the software that I paid for (not rented) unusable is an insult to DXO’s existing customers. I do not plan on buying V4 on principle - because I am sure one day V5 will come along and then V4 will be made unuable.
Yes - I am aware that there is some hack that is possible if you modify some code somewhere. I tried that last time. It is overwritten at every minor bug fix.
DXO Guys - please do the right thing and stop treating your existing customers with such disdain!
