I hope this is the right place for this as I view Docker as possible usage in build context as well..

I was curious of peoples thoughts on the changes in Docker (Desktop) subscription model.  

It seems to allow for educational use for free but large usages requires fee based subscriptions.  

I believe it’s limited to “Docker Desktop” so assume the underlying docker functionality may not be fully impacted but was curious for thoughts on it none the less.

The approbiate forum for your message should be

To your question: I think the new subscription model should not change to much for personal, learning and similar usages of Docker. There are now limits on maximum usage and this hits at least big businesses in case they used Docker without any subscription.

Without looking too detailed on this change it seams somehow fair that mass usage or professional usage is limited. Hosting docker images costs money for work force, energy and other things.
