I find it interesting that I have come full circle... I started with D&D (Erol Otis cover Basic Set) and wandered through Champions to very minimalist and free-form games, found there is such a thing as "too free-form," and ultimately decided that although D&D/Pathfinder isn't my ideal cup of tea, the large community and product support make it very, very attractive. And modern D&D has adopted a smidge of indie sensibility.

So tried out Foundry VTT this weekend, after a well of experimentation and prep. I really like the one-time fee and self-hosting, and the vast array of customization with plugin modules. A few quirks, one outright bug, but overall I like it better than Roll20. R20 has barely changed in over five years, and there needed to be more innovation.
