Hey i’ve recently started playing with cloud 9 and i must admit that there is a lot of potential in your offer but i do have some issues with the pricing.
- The step from 0 to 20 is large, i’ve played with the free mode and i like it, for simple things seems easy and fast but as soon as i load the bigger project the VM got realy slow so i cant realy tell if this is going to be good as my daily driver
- The offer of unlimited workspaces is not so great, i’d much reather have 5 good then unlimited number of weak VMs
- Paying full price for something that i dont know how much i will use is an issue, i’d reather pay 3$ for one then 20 for unlimited
- I’m paying 20$ only for online deving, a lot of times i’m in an area where internet connection is not that great(coffee shop…) or there is none(planes, buses, trains…), and i see this as the bigges hurdle since there is no way this solution can offer offline support that means that i still have to have offline setup and also pay 20 for this.
Sorry for criticising this much but i do this because i realy like your product, i just belive that you are now targeting people with very specific needs(unlimited workspaces…) and 20$ is a good price for them but for a lot of people this is a lot of money. As a node.js developer i have all the stack you are providing with vagrant, atom, docker for free so a 20$ is a bit steep
