It's official - Adobe's finally going all Cloud
« on: May 06, 2013, 01:54:40 PM »
From a press release today: Adobe has decided to focus its resources on Creative Cloud and will not continue development on its Creative Suite software, reports The Next Web. While Creative Suite 6 will continue to be supported in regards to bug fixes, there will be no further updates and no Creative Suite 7.

Here we go....

By the way, didn't see anything about it on Adobe's newsroom page.

They will still be making new versions of their apps though they will be called CC instead of CS. You'll still have to download them to your computer and install them. Instead of buying the software at a flat cost though you will be forced into the monthly subscription. $49.99 per month though they do have a special of $29.99 for the first year I believe it is. They basically turned it into a cash cow that never stops producing.

Yup. Cash cow. They know America loves hamburgers.

Makes sense - bean counter.

I'm seeing a lot of squawking about this move on another forum. Maybe I should have put this topic under Doomed.

Actually, it ain't so bad. Of course, there's always Publisher.
