On article 10 Photo Editing Programs (that aren't Photoshop) (352 comments in total)

I have spent my weekend trying different software alternatives, and my choice is Corel Paint Shop Pro X5 Ultimate: I am sure that I can work with PSP X5 and do not need an Adobe Photoshop product anymore. It is better than Elements because it has the batch functions that are not available in Elements.
In addition, all the photoshop plugins that I have tried with PSP X5 are running perfectly. The PSP X5 dialog boxes look very familiar to the Photoshop users like me.
So bye bye Adobe: I have identified another route and a good one.
Maybe this Adobe decision to humiliate its clients will be the most important value added to the graphics/photo software market since 10 years...

On article Kodak files for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (95 comments in total)
In reply to:

snowboarder: The worst part is the managers who killed that company
over they years still made their millions...

Snowboarder is very true: I have professionnally visited Kodak at the very beginning of the digital era (a few months before): all the employees I talked to, said that they all knew that there was no hope for the Company to survive, and they said they the reason.
They told me that it was because the shareolders have refused to invest in digital, in order to preserve their profits ! They told me that the company did have the resources to invest , but the shareolders cupidity was too high....
The future has shown that they were right...

On article Adobe faces criticism for change of upgrade policy (375 comments in total)

Microsot has an even worse policy than Adobe, particularly regarding the Enterprises : they have a monopoly with Windows on the PCs, Sharepoint for the collaborative tool, Windows server (it is not the only OS available but you practically cannot avoid it the companies).
There is NO upgrade policy , unless you subscribe what is called a "software insurance", that is nothing less than a subscription process.
Adobe strts doing the same because they have a monopoly with Photoshop.

As long as our politicians will continue to pay more attention to the crude milk cheese or to the minimum diameter of the saussages to get an authorization to be sold on the market, INSTEAD of limiting what the Editors can do in their contracts, then we will continue to pay more and more (and our companies will also continue to pay more and more).

You can complain as much as you want, but the only solution is a legal limitation against the Editors: and I do not see any intention of our politicians to act...
