I don't currently use Photoshop - I use a version of Corel Photopaint that is a few years old. My concern is that if Adobe are going down this path - as Microsoft also appear to be trying with the new version of MS Office - how long will it be before the other main software houses follow suit?
Like many others, I wish to own the software that I use so that I know exactly what I own and how much it costs.
