its most likely a huge number applying for rhe same jobs..official ads..then theres hidden ones that may not have reached the state to any official position..but might.Bit late here but was a bit sick, so this slighty late response from my side:
That the will buy one for you of course would be very cool but highly unlikely I guess. ;-) But I feel the strong urge to add that that is a brillant business model that Adobe has developed there: Sell subs of a CC Suite for a year (the minimum duration, in that Adobe is even multitudes worse than A-Desk) to everyone - all 400 applicants in your case - that will apply for some design job! Wow, never looked at it from that side... ;-) Attention: those all are meant to be ironic smileys here!
I clearly believe that even if you know only CS3 or CS4 (or whatever was current in 2013) it would surely qualify you as you probably know at least 90% or more of all relevant tools in PS already anyway... At least CS4 still installs fine under Win10 (an old CreativeSuite4 here, to bad I missed the last possible chance to upgrade to CS6.) There is so few tools that I for instance need to use for the once or two a month print/layout jobs I get booked on (on site of the publisher) that I rarely need to look up anything that came after my outdated version...
Anyway, I hope your investment will pay off and in the end everything is just fine.
It sounds like you have come out of retirement Prometheus.....
Apologies if I am wrong, I thought I read a while back in one of your threads you where retired.
Adobe's stock value, since the advent of CC, suggests this has not been a marketing/communication issue....First off, they shouldn´t have changed the label from creative suite to creative cloud, it will only confuse potential users as it could be mistaken as tools only available online and not installable on computers...
It can´t be judged properly, we can only speculate.Adobe's stock value, since the advent of CC, suggests this has not been a marketing/communication issue.
I appreciate the effort put into a fruitless debate.
Since the advent of CC, Adobe has published a FAQ (linked prominently from the CC homepage ...or now embedded in the CC homepage) that explains how the software works with the "cloud". Most customers do not appear to be confused about how modern software works.
CC is not limited to installed software. You also have services "in the cloud" for stock content, collaboration and version control. These services were not available in CS. CC is an appropriate name.
That's a fair argument. I should have said "all customers". There is no possible way to be a CC customer without directly observing the installation of software. All CC customers know the software is local.
