Our CEO just referred to SaaS as "Software as a hostage" and I think that's pretty spot on.

SaaS: The ultimate form of privatization of digital tools to benefit corporations at the expense of individual freedom.

It's the worst of capitalism applied to goods that literally cost NOTHING to replicate.

… just realizing i'm replying to a months-old thread, but if any of you think #LibreSaaS is a solution in some scenarios— have the shared resources and easy startup of SaaS, with the prevention of hostage-taking afforded by Free Software (and data portability), i'm hoping to start a website to spread the word so ping me if you want to be a moderator / do the thing, currently just an etherpad pad.drutopia.org/p/libresaas
