    I know this is piling on, but it's early November 2019 and as far as I know there are no updates on this issue. So...

    I think we all understand the need to license products and for Microsoft to profit from development and support. But the current situation leaves no way forward for smaller organizations. There is a gigantic financial gap between staying with legacy SSRS and moving to Power Bi Paginated Reports. I believe smaller clients would be fine with paying for a new level of individual license above Pro if it was a small dollar bump and provided paginated report functionality. And I also believe Microsoft would reap a nice reward with the many thousands of licenses that would result. So, maybe Pro Plus for $12.95/mo?

    I think Microsoft has done a fantastic job providing these types of tools to the 'bottom of the pyramid' thus far. I hope this particular issue can be solved to continue this nice tech run.
