If they get changed. What to do?

Hi to all,

I need answers for few questions which I got in my mind.

Why are we using Google, WordPress, Facebook, Twitter and so on…?
My answer to this question, to make use of the feature which has been provided by the company to accomplish my tasks very easily for free of cost.

Recently I noticed in WordPress, they removed the feature called “Install Plugins” from wordpress.com. Beauty of the “Install plugins” feature is we can install any plugin/add-on  in wordpress blog if we have singed up in wordpress, some of the plugins to make the tasks easier are  creating Table of Contents, Code Highlighter, and so..

Now the thing is they removed the feature from wordpress.com and still providing in wordpress.org. So, If i want to utilize this feature I supposed to register my blog in public domain and get support from wordpress.org and then I need to utilize the feature for some amount of cost.

Like that in-case if in future if they noticed that most of the people using wordpress and all of them are depending on wordpress, and if they decided to change everything to some amount of cost, would people withdraw the usage of wordpress? I don’t think so.

Similarly we are using google products like gmail, picasa, groups, and tons more…. If they decided to charge 10$ for creating and maintaining accounts in gmail, then would people like to using that one further? I think at that time they will look for an alternative in-case if they don’t feel the comfortableness on the  new product, am damn sure that they will not hesitate to spend 10$ for an account in gmail.

Here comes my question:   

In future if they changed like above, what will we do…..?
In Otherway, If they stop providing features/products in free of cost and charging for some amount what will we do?

Awaiting for your answers….
