Isn't that just an introductory price for the first year ?
You know, I'm not sure. I saw that mentioned as the price for subscribing to any of the applications.
I guess this scheme will gain Adobe some new customers, but as an existing Photoshop user I see no advantages. At $20/month it's considerably more expensive than the current $199 upgrade fee that comes along every 18 months or so. It's loaded with requirements that I assiduously avoid -- automatic charges to my credit card, monthly activation checks and the necessary reliance on an internet connection.
And another thing I've started to wonder about is the stability of these updates that are supposed to come flowing along. Right now we have months of public beta testing before the final release. Then it takes a month or two (or three) before plugins get updated to reliably work with the new version. How is this supposed to work with constant updates to the program? Maybe Jeff can shed some light on this.
I'm sorry to sound so negative about Adobe's "Cloud", but it holds no advantages for me and Adobe seems hell-bent on making this their business model.
