Magento pulls the plug on Professional Edition

Just got notice Magento is phasing out professional edition. No surprise after 2 years of collecting money without fixing any bugs, releasing little new features…

Great. Now what. I have invested a considerable amount of money in implementing P.E. Enterprise to expensive. Go is to limited for us. And CE just not my cup of tea (no offense to the community who helped creating this great piece of software).

Stupid stupid stupid. There is a market segment for this product. But you need to continue to develop the product. No just release and forget about it. The gap between Go and E.E. is just to big not to be bridged. If this is the way ahead of this whole Ebay X-commerce bullshit the Magento folks sold out to, than I am not very happy.

Any thoughts?

No surprise really with the News that professional is now being phased out, I think it has always been on the card for some time. At the end of the day there wasn’t much value in the professional edition unless you needed PA-DSS, the other features you could probably get from a community extension.

We are weighing up our choices and wonder why you will not be considering CE, if Enterprise is too much of an investment?

If anyone have downgraded from EE to CE and would like to share their experiences please visit http://www.magentocommerce.com/boards/viewthread/272280/

Thanks
