Alternative Energy Photography: The price is too high. It's simply too rich at $50 per month for a single seat. At least Microsoft Office's subscription model is only $100 per year and allows up to 5 seats. Subscription models are like alimony: open-ended, meaning you pay until somebody gets married, dies, or the end of time.
So cost rises, period.
I hear a lot of grousing and complaining here. But I see NOTHING happening to correct this latest decision. For example, this forum is burning up, but Adobe's own forum has almost no complaints. You're all whining here and not THERE.
500,000 have already been suckered into the subscription model, with over a million currently in trial. Perfect reasoning for Adobe to make it permanent for all!
Adobe users are among the loudest whiners, but also among the MOST APATHETIC (as a group). By default, apathy encourages more of what you have not discouraged.
Here's the upshot:
ADOBE THINKS WE LIKE THIS BECAUSE THERE IS VERY LITTLE ACTIONABLE EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY.
I live in the country and have slow internet service. Adobe, good luck and good bye!
The survey kept asking me about my mobile phone. I don't have a mobile phone. Could not complete the survey!
