I saw complaints when this subscription thing started on the Adobe forums. Some people couldn't get it to work for weeks. One guy never got to use his the whole first month, then Adobe cancelled his subscription. I'd hate to have to trust their servers to use software.
Tall tree, short ropes, fix stupid.

Agreed but it doesn't even have to be the Adobe servers to go down. Lose your internet? Sorry I can't do any work today. :wtf:

Just got this from an online discussion:


I hope you're all doing well and thanks for the lively discussion.

My name is Bing and I'm the Social Media lead for our Global Customer Success team here at Adobe. I'd like to help address some of the issues brought up in this forum.

For starters, we have a special introductory offer for existing customers who have a registered suite or individual product version of CS3, CS4 or CS5, CS5.5,
or CS6. These customers who join Creative Cloud (annual plan) by August 31, 2012 will receive the special introductory pricing of $29.99/mo for the first year of membership. Please see our special offer page here: https://creativecloud-specialoffer.a...fer/?loc=en_US.

As for the question regarding needing constant internet connection, the correct answer.

"Because your Creative Suite applications are installed directly on your computer, you will not need an ongoing Internet connection to use them on a daily basis. However, you will need to be online when you install and license your software, and at least once every 30 days thereafter. The software will alert you when you need to connect to the Internet for a license status check."

This, and many other pertinent pieces of information can be found within our Creative Cloud Membership (CCM) FAQ here:  http://www.adobe.com/products/creativecloud/faq.html.

Regarding questions surrounding the Education piece of our new offering, please browse through our Creative Cloud Student & Teacher FAQ here:  http://www.adobe.com/education/produ...tivecloud.html.

Finally, for those who are interested in Volume Licensing, the Creative Cloud Team memberships will become available later in 2012 through Adobe's network of corporate resellers. Creative Cloud Team is expected to cost US$840/seat based on a 12-month term membership. Exact details on Creative Cloud Team are still being defined.

Please don't hesitate to read through the following FAQ's and post additional questions as I'd be more than happy to assist answering.

Not sure I follow the logic of those two statements. The first one comes to $359.88 while I've heard the regular price is about $50 per month ($600 per year) after the first year introductory price. What are the benefits of paying $840 per year per seat with the "Creative Cloud Team"?

I think it was the TBD line... they really did not want to talk money which makes it almost impossible to go and ask for it :banghead:
At this point can't give a 2 year projected cost and that is what I wanted to find out so I can ask for money... waiting till something real comes out I guess.

What a pile of bullshit. Because of the work we do in the pharma trade, NONE of our loaded workstations are connected on-line and we're not allowed to be EVER. So wtf now Adobe?

Sounds like they acted before thinking it through. They probably just can't comprehend a computer without internet access. But I think you can still get the boxed version of CS6 without "The Cloud". I'm betting it will probably be the last version where the boxed version is available. Well, maybe 6.5 but from 7 on I'll bet the could is your only option.

Still, on the pricing structure, we have 14 licenses of CS 5.5. If we upgrade to the cloud, the first year will run us $5038.32. After the first year, assuming it is $50 per year it will be $8400 per year. :wow:

If we just upgrade to the CS6 boxed version it will run us $5250 and will last until whenever the next version is released. Either way Adobe is the big winner in this ripoff operation.

funny about the pharma work, I guess it doesn't matter if they broker it out to places like this where everyything is connected to the internet. And the last place I worked. And the place before that. Great security there.

At our facility there are two laptops connected to high speed for email and FTP, but they are independent of the internal workstation network. Our clients are very paranoid about security. Inspections happen frequently.

I wonder what the brokers tell big pharma. Worked on their stuff for years thru brokers. Probably just lie, like they are known to do.

Same here, we do pharma work and financial for other shops. I was told I'd have to sign a NDA but I haven't seen one yet. Only place I worked where I had to sign a NDA was when we were doing the materials for the Mercedes SLR McLaren.

Here is the latest info I got from Adobe on the CS6 subscription for site and offline installations.
It answers some - but not all - of the questions.
Hope it helps.
