In reply to Martin Middlewood
Are you kidding? Price is a major factor in any business decision. Just as the phone service has price wars, so too will the hosted software providers. At the end-of-the-day, they are just like the phone, electric, cable, etc...
That is one thing the software service model must figure out. If you are going to claim you are a service, you better be prepared to compete like one. Big difference in software is there are no monopolies so the benefits that phone service or an electricity company or cable provider has will not play in this arena.
The simple fact is in the 5-20 user market (which I bet is 75%+ of salesforce.com's user base) is very price sensitive and a savings of $100-$1500 per month is substantial!

Given the spread of the Covid-19 Delta variant, if my employer requires me to return to the company's location in 2021, I will...
Agree because I'm fully vaccinated.
Agree if the company institutes a mandatory mask requirement and other safety protocols.
Comply reluctantly, because I can't afford to lose my job, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job I feel is safer.
Resign because I'm not vaccinated and don't want to risk infection to myself or others.
