Any news on HS4?

I agree it's not good enough to say the web UI is not important because it's an admin 'console'. A slick responsive interface is an easier sell.

To be positive, there are a multitude of charging options other companies use. From free unsupported, low cost email support, paid telephone support. Tiered monthly subscriptions, expanded product line etc

The default "GUI" (if you want to call it that) for HSTouch is not what's supposed to sell HS. It's IMPOSSIBLE to come up with a default flashy UI that would apply to everyone's situation. The high degree of HA customization prevents that. Of course, if HS wants to come up with some dumbed down object oriented dynamic interface builder, then fine, but I prefer the blank slate of HSTouch Designer that allows you to design anything you can imagine. Having said that, I have seen some really sad looking interfaces with sensory/information overload. Blame the creator for those, not HS.

As others have mentioned, the majority of us would be willing to pay a yearly fee as long as the support is there (i.e., addressing the Bugzilla black hole where things go and are never addressed). The ONLY way I would ever pay for HS4 is if it's comprised of the following: HS3 + all outstanding HS3 bugs addressed + new events engine. Otherwise, HS3 meets my current needs just fine.
