Re: Don't forget
Yeah, when the jackbooted thugs from Adobe came round my house to move me off of CS6 I had to hide in the basement.
Adobe didn't *force* anyone to do squat. If you didn't have a license or buy a license during the months long period when they announced the pricing shift, yeah, you now need to buy a subscription or find a piece of 11 year old software on the shelf. But CS6 still updates just fine.
I was expecting the normal commentard discussion on how you can use the Gimp/Paint Shop Pro/Microsoft paint whatever to do "The same thing" and save literally tens of dollars. The Adobe CC suite is aimed at creative teams, and delivers excellent functionality. If you make a living with these tools - they are not egregiously priced compared to most software in that space, and either your company has a license or you can take the entire subscription off your taxes (in the US). IF you are a causal user, you can always do a 30 day trial and then never buy the license at all. But Adobe has not yet forced anyone to do anything against their will.
