Why is any Adobe service running in the background of my computer when I install any Adobe application?
I installed Adobe XD and now I have 2-3 Adobe services running in the background even if I don't open Adobe XD ever again.
What would it look like if every single application worked this way?
Do you need help writing good software? You don't have enough funds or quality developers? What's the problem? Why?
Someone up in the management decided it's a good idea to have Adobe services running in the background, because who wouldn't want that. Everyone knows users are stupid, let's make sure they don't work around our subscriptions.
