Entitlement? If you can't afford the industry's premiere professional tool perhaps you need to look for cheaper or free software. There are plenty of alternatives, which this forum naturally cannot discuss.
Entitlement? Undermining ones financial or economic status who is a full time student and works to pay rent, tuition, food, books, or any number of circumstances which are unknown to you. Entitlement is expecting one to have the same financial abilities that you have and don't deserve access to similar resources for success. Yes, Many premier programs are offered free through universities but not all programs such as adobe pro. Yes, adobe has a right to make money as they do have a quality product, yes there are other alternatives that cannot be discussed. As a premier professional software company, allowing free access to PDF editor or Pro version to students would not be a bad bad thing? Having one of the better pdf softwares available and allowing students to access could help them become acquainted with the software, develop tools to be successful using the product, and show how much more convenient the system really is. Thus promoting the future use and long term use of the product while still helping students during the difficult time everyone finds themselves in during this time, qith the already rigorous education in college.
How do you know that someone who's not a student as you has any better finanial abilities? An ordinary worker must always pay the full price for everything s/he needs. While students getting discounts for so many things already (rail tickets, cinema, cell phone contract and so on …). I really don't understand your complaining.
Adobe offers substantial discounts for students and teachers for virtually all our products, including Acrobat.
Many universities have licenses that provide Acrobat and/or other Adobe products at very minimal or no cost to their students. Check with your college or university (or their bookstore) on what arrangements they have for access to Adobe products.
Note though that such academic licenses do require proof of eligibility, i.e. enrollment in a recognized, degree program or being a faculty member teaching such a program.
