Adobe Lightroom goes mobile, but only for subscribers

Look, I paid 99,- for DXO Optics. My first choice would have been LR, but due to the (obviously) upcoming subscription model I looked elsewhere, Why should I pay 300,- in 3 years, 400,- in 4 years and so on when I can have a similarily powerful tool for 99,- for as long as I want to use it? DXO is even more powerful in some respects than LR; and lags behind in other fileds, i.e. image organizer; but hey, what does an image organizer cost? Some of the best are freeware or shareware…). I am still using Adobe Bridge to manage my image library (must be some 5 years old or even older, still works for me WITHOUT monthly payments).
