Jogger: Its funny that people have no issue with $900 iPads (replaced annually of course), $700 phones, $100/month phone plans, $10 month XBL accounts, $5 daily cups of coffee, $1.5/L of gasoline...
But, paying $10 a month for a software that is part of their business (ie. allows you to make money) is somehow treasonous.
I have a smart phone (unlocked Nexus 5 <$400 after tax and $30/month TMO plan) and a laptop, never saw a need for a tablet. I brew my own coffee at ~50 cents/cup. I ride my bike or take the subway. And yes, paying anything in perpetuity is insulting; it's the point, not the cost.
I believe Corel PhotoPaint has more features than Corel PaintShop Pro.It's part of the Draw Suite, so you'll get an Illustrator alternative as well.I used it 15 years ago before I got Photoshop CS1, it was pretty powerful.
Will retailers be removing all their posters and shelf space for Adobe products since all the money will be going directly to Adobe? Will there be kickbacks to retailers for getting them hooked on the sub, like cell-phone providers?I started using Corel DRAW and Photo-Paint 15 years ago, but Adobe lapped them, here's hoping Corel can come back.
