You've said so much that is so right.
I agree.

Basically the thing is that people are "jumping to the cloud" as a buzzword chase (quick print it on the brochure for our software).
And the thing is that you can't just turn a desktop app into a cloud app. It would take more design than that.
Totally agree with you.

Finally, this is a huge on for software users:

I hate being forced to upgrade when the current product is working fine, and I've gotten quite used to it!

When will companies understand that it is a total waste of time for users when users have the functionality that they want. I know it's a bit facetious but Windows 7 really had everything I wanted and a very nice interface. But Microsoft had to change everything (and yes I'm a Win10 user).

The Hammer Analogy
Imagine if carpenters had to upgrade their hammers because version 2.032 of nail came out.
The carpenter goes into the hardware store and says, "My hammer doesn't seem to be working."
h/w guy: which version of nail are you using?
carpenter: 2.032
h/w guy: oh you have to have version 3.87 or better of hammer then.
carpenter : @$%&@%^!@!! what advantages do the new nails have?
h/w guy: they're cheaper for the manufacturer to make.
carpenter : @$%&@%^!@!!
Laugh | :laugh:
