I think it's sad (and greedy) that Adobe no longer offers upgrade pricing on Photoshop and other Creative Suite software. They want to force everyone to the cloud and pay endlessly for a subscription. Unfortunately some of us don't have deep pockets to do this so, reluctantly, I will be looking for alternative software. Too bad. I think Adobe will lose a lot of customers from this move.

It looks like Microsoft is taking this tac as well. I see that you can buy the office suite two ways, either with a 1 year license or outright. The EDA Tool market has been this way for years with some of those tools costing multiple 10's of thousands per year per user.  I am afraid that this may be a trend. It is tough to get people to keep buying a mature tool like Photoshop after all, it has been more than most people need for quite a few years.
