Yo, Copilot moving to a paid model?

They were smart, let us use it for free for a while then grow a dependence and BAM, need to pay.

    With recent Telegram update, they did the similar thing, put bunch of features behind the pay wall.

    I don't think it's smart, but rather a regular (no brainer) business decision.

    They never said it was free forever, and they too have to make money.

    With co-pilot, what sucks is that they used open source to build/train their model and now monetising it.

    Paying for copilot is like paying Satya Nadella to take a fat shit on my chest.

    No thanks, I don't like Satya Nadella and I don't want his shit.

    I’ve still never used it.

    If copilot has a trial or something, I’ll give it a try. I’m curious.

    Honestly though, Sublime recommending me things I’ve typed before in a similar context is amazing — and probably all that I want anyway?

    @Root they have a 60 day trial right now. It comes in handy every now and then say for sorting or destructuring, it's quite intelligent

    free for students and open-source, it says.

    Makes sense, if you're an employee and your company is using someone's else code for commercial purposes, better pay something to avoid possible lawsuit.

    It's still affordable as Microsoft has a $10 billion investment in OpenAI.

    @theabbie That's just so that MS can replace Cortana with Clippy 2.0 at some point.
