Adobe needs more competition, not complaints
In reply to Prstl2, May 7, 2013

I really doubt our complaints will make them change their policy (much though I wish it would).  There's not enough competition to Photoshop CSx (or to quite a few other CS products), so expect prices to continue to rise.  Sure, Adobe will say this is what they need to charge to make a sensible return and software development is becoming more expensive and they have really great developers and blah blah blah.

All of which is probably true.  But when there's competition, magically monopolies find ways of cutting costs. They're not being dishonest, but it's amazing how difficult it is to reduce costs when you don't have to.

All corporates without exception become fat and inefficient without the fear of God (or bankruptcy) to keep them lean.  Funny thing is, all monopolies really believe that they ARE facing competition, and they really are lean and fit...
