So I'd get 92% off in the first year, after which I'd be able to move to $460 a year bundle of subscriptions not counting Parallels?

Deal of the year (literally).

I know people probably won't be very familiar with it but I love JetBrains' subscription model. You get a perpetual license for the current version and any updates. If you continue your subscription for a second year, your perpetual license gets upgraded to the current version and you get a 20% discount. Continue for a third year and the discount goes to 40% where it's capped as long as you maintain your subscription. If you decide to cancel at any time, you still have the perpetual license.

Customers feel like they're getting something because they can fallback to perpetual license while also getting an incentive to continue subscribing. The company gets a consistent, reliable revenue stream to fund further development. Seems like a win for everyone but I haven't see this model anywhere else.

I never realized a single letter can offer so much. Can't wait to see what happens when they introduce b and c.
