Backward compatibility, marketing strategies, etc.

The outcry at Nikon's abandon (30 years later ?) of owners of AI lenses is understandable.

As a large proportion of those owners are probably users of Adobe products I just wonder how they feel when Adobe forces people to buy new versions of their products every time something changes in their setup.

I just love it when they tell you that if you have the old version, they have this extraordinary offer: for 80$ (eg) you can upgrade to the new version instead of having to buy at 90$ (eg) a fresh licence of the new version. And you have to do that because you bought this great new camera.

On another plane: afyer having explained for years that object orientation was a huge mistake (in the prehistoric pre .NET framework times), Microsoft uturned abruptly and started singing the praise of object orientation. Wonder how many places went bankrupt because of how strongly Microsoft took care of its customers.

Miracles dont last forever. One can blame Nikon, perhaps, but things should be put in perspective first.
