    CNET: Adobe kills Creative Suite, goes subscription-only

    "Just a year after launching its $50-per-month plan, Adobe has made its Creative Cloud the only way to get the new versions of its full software suite. Customers "overwhelmingly" prefer it.

    They must be talking to the wrong customers.

    As Corel welcomes the customers Adobe will lose over this. I love the quote, "customers overwhelmingly prefer it." That's corporate CYA-speak.

    I guess CS5 is as far as I go, good job it was a good one and will suffice for the foreseeable future. Monthly fee - NO WAY.

    CS6 is as far as I go if this is the only path to upgrade.I hand code Html already I guess dream weaker is not in my future. There was a thread on open source alternatives a ways back.

    This better be a late April Fools joke! They could have at least had the decency to wait for some competition first. sigh.

    Are offline company volume-licenses still available or does everyone of their customers still need to do this annoying cloud crap?

    Please make some noise on Twitter people. If enough people yell, they might reverse their decision and with any luck fire some exec who thinks more people want to be controlled and have yet another monthly power bill (from Adobe this time) and more admin work when we'd rather have one off capital expenditures. #CCbacklash


    I'm sick of companies wanting a piece of me every month. I'd rather pay them when I want to pay them, even if that price seems more. I've worked out the numbers for me, the sub fees are more when you count everything.

    No, they are talking to the two customers that agree that the "cloud" is the way to go.

    Yeah, forget Corel, too...they're cloud based as well. When Photoshop CS3 stops working for me, I'll go GIMP.

    Twitter seems to be going mad against the move. Adobe is keeping their head down trying to weather the storm. This needs to keep up much more than a day to have any effect. This is Sim City all over again, but this time half the country can't work if Amazon Web Services goes down. Adobe could at least give me my own cloud product to install on my own servers instead of this debacle.
