I totally understand the need to have a steady income to allow the continued development of tools, but it would be wise to heed the appearance of 2 giants in this field - Intel AMT, some many years in its unfortunately slow development, and Google's own ideas on this. I don't understand the lack of a custom pricing enquiry at the very least - show some consideration for a variety of users that can't work with the pricing offered. You and I are obviously have very different needs - I've honestly not noticed any difference in TV's many versions since I started using it, since my usage is entirely based on a convenient remote desktop solution free of router config, and I would think there is a whole ocean of users like myself. Sigh.

I am quite surprised to see a lack of discussion on TV's community on this issue. There are certainly plenty of discussions outside of TV's community on this issue ... I am a retired programmer that have been asked by manufacturers in my past life to help out their customers and I do this maybe once a week for a short time. I don't get paid, but yesterday it says commercial use detected, and I am completely blocked from any use - both my notebook PC and home PC are blocked at the same time. I really think this is pretty vicious. Time limits and that sort of thing might be acceptable - gives you time to appeal if you are genuinely using this for personal use, but outright blocking based on usage guess-analytics ... really? Why doesn't TV just say personal use is only free for 30 days and charge for personal use? They seem to be getting a lot of bad publicity with this commercial use block. Personal use could be a much lower pricing with limitations on number of PCs or usage or whatever. As a retired programmer, I have always paid for everything I use and donated with software I found useful, so to experience what I am experiencing with TV is just brutal.
