How many of you love all this confusion and new pricing. I have used Adobe products since 1990!!!!  This must be a late April fools joke.

I agree,

I think this will give a boost to all the other possible alternatives.

I do hope so, I doubt I will ever use Adobe CC,

The good news is that my CS6 Application do all I need so unless they offer some ground breaking features only available in CC I am happy.

A new year ! New challenges !!

And the same old Haters thread with the same wrong conclusions ("Adobe is a monopoly") and over-repeated advises ("GIMP isn't bad"). Oh wait, here's a new one I came across last week: http://www.polarr.co/ - my New Year's gift for all those Adobe haters and lovers. Try those "fringes", and have fun with this new tool, seriously !

Oops, EDIT: the domain is without the usual "m". I had to correct it... Sorry !

I'm not a hater, my experience since I started with CC has just been bad. None of my other Adobe software purchases prior to Adobe CC were as bad in the first month.

And I think Polarr has the right to start billing a fee at any time, if I read their terms of service correctly...

Over here there's a saying: greed rips the sack.

CC has developed in all the wrong ways and for no reason, there's a hundred decent free apps for every Adobe program.

Ink scape being one of the smartest for the common acrobat needs.

Thanks for that Inscape suggestion. I downloaded it and will check it out. It looks like it's a good replacement for Illustrator ( not Acrobat?).

I actually use it INSTEAD of Acrobat, since it allows you to edit PDF files on the spot.

If you're patient,the story of why I became so annoyed at Acrobat is exactly due to that: I am an architect and was presenting some paperwork for a construction permit. A single number was wrong in my application, and all I had to do was to edit it in the pdf file right on the spot, or come back some other day with a new form. Tried with Acrobat but no, No editing possible in the free app.

Luckily, I was able to DL Ink Scape with my phone connection and fill in the form on the spot. Ciao Adobe!

BTW:

I just discovered bull zip: a better pdf printer than Acrobat or windows native: it allows bigger and personalized formats, up to A-0

Hmm, I would have never though Inkscape could edit PDFs. That's a good tip! I've been using BullZip for years and it's a formidable alternative to Acrobat. Glad that permit worked out for you

I hate the decision, certainly. And I will do everything possible to make them change their mind. Of course, that simply means voting with my wallet and not paying for CC.

Isn't that the truth. To also think of all the excitement and goodwill Adobe earned from new users who "switched" during the Final Cut debacle completely evaporated once they discovered  that Adobe had their own debacle waiting in the wings for them with a subscription service.

I hate the decision and will personally help rewrite GIMP/some other open source program before I subscribe to CC, same thing with MS Office... though I got tricked into buying that.

If I cant get the next version on disc's like normal I am out. This might work for people in the USA and UK but in Africa no go. Look what happened to Final cut when they did not listen to the customer. AVID is starting to look good again. ADOBE wake up. I have had CS4, CS5, CS5.5 and CS6 how can you do this!

Just let software continue to work after subscription expires, just stop updating it. As many other companies do.

In present form CC is no go for many people.

What if you let your subscription expire, but you can still open existing files, can't create new files. But if you need to print or export video, it has a slight watermark with clouds and the Adobe logo. Like a reverse demo version. One that you pay for first, then afterwards your get the watermark.

I hope many people will complain about this so that Adobe will have to rethink their decision. This is against all the people who bought CS or photoshop since version 1 and who invested year by year and now get totally ripped off. Sure CS 6 will continue to run, but just wait one or two processor or OS-generations and it won't do anymore and then you will have to go to the cloud. Sooner or later they will also require that you store your data in the cloud, then everything is in the hands of others. We will lose control over our things. And how safe the internet is was nicely documented with a $ 42 million robbery a few days ago by hacking credit card accounts (which are certainly more safe then Adobe's cloud). Forget it.

By the way, is there a forum or website/e-mail that the Adobe people will read certainly? Then we should make up a list where people can sign in, who disagree with Adobe's decision.
