Poll: What concerns you most about Adobe’s move to subscription software?

You are incorrect for the majority of Photoshop users that already own the software.

As of now, I pay $199 every 18months.

Adobe is offering a deal if I switch to the cloud, 6 months ahead of the normal upgrade cycle, for $120 for the next twelve months.

Then, it’s back to the normal price of $240 every 12 months.

So, as you can see, Adobe has raised it’s prices to existing customers by 55%!!!!! How many companies get away with that? Monopolies.

So, basically, the only way to fight this is through the antitrust laws.

Up next – you go through an economic downturn, again, and have a bad month. Your Photoshop access? Denied for non-payment. Thanks Adobe, you’re a real peach.”

Exactly. Seems like a lot of people have been having problems doing math lately. The reality is from $11 ish to $20 a month. These are the same people who sign up for all sorts of stuff at the into price thinking they’re getting something just to find out in a few months they are in for it. Sad.
