I wonder if anyone has clocked the upgrade timeline. I bet they have it set to something like 0.8 x the length of the previous upgrade. It's geometric, not linear.   :angry:  I try hard not to harbour malign feelings towards Adobe, but it's becoming harder.  And that's not including the outa phase Acrobat releases that Joe mentions. GRRR!

I was looking at the pricing structure for their "cloud" subscription option (makes me throw up a little more every time I hear that term) and it's actually cheaper for somebody using single licenses, especially given the shorter release time between each version. For shops that have to carry multiple licenses for workstations though, boned.
A little diddie 'bout black 'n cyan...two reflective colors doin' the best they can.

I just watched one of their videos about the "Cloud". User can use the apps from any device, PC's, Macs, tablets, phones...any device with web access. So it is bring the reality of us getting jobs that were created from designers phones. :death:

You can get the whole Master Collection for $49 per month ($588 per year). That's not a bad deal if you are one that uses it a lot. Cheaper than trying to keep up with their 12-18 month release cycle.

I can't wait until I get a Indy file that won't open in 5.5

The only reason we "upgraded" to CS5.5 was because of version to version incompatibility.

I posted in another thread. Adobe is now going to a yearly cycle. "Major" releases (6,7,8) every 2 years and 6.5,7.5,ect. every year between them. So expect to shell out money every year to keep current.

I'd rather have stories told than be telling stories of what I could have done.

Think my boss is on a 28 minute cycle.

You know, I try to cut you some slack, due to you being the keeper of the keys and flipper of the lightswitches here, but you've colored WAY outside the lines here.  :police:

That wasn't Joe, it was the Chinese hacker that posted that one.

It did sound a little like a Chinese person that doesn't quite grasp the language yet. I think Farabomb is right.

I can just see somebody subscribing to the Cloud, then Apple will make some big change in their OS or hardware again, and the next Adobe upgrade will only work with the new stuff. So it will be get new computers or el-tough-o. Either that or scramble for CS DVDs on Amazon before the older version is gone. What joy.

I would also like to know what happens if you lose your internet connection. You can't use CS6?

I've already seen complaints on the Adobe forums on that subject. They way they have trouble with their activation servers, I can imagine what the Cloud would be like.
