On the other hand, yaredna joined May 7th–also with an anonymous screen name and pretty much all of his/her/it's posts have been directed towards the Photoshop CC situation. Seems LuLa has gotten a bunch of new members due to the CC announcements...
Here are two clues:
The first 5 letters or yaredna: my last name
The first 2 letters: initials
And yes, I do have a public life outside of Lula. Google ?
By the way, I only joined to annoy you. Here you have it. Happy now? It is a pattern: when you fail to counter with arguments, you start the character assassination technique. Works well in politics, must work in photography too, right ? Keep attacking me instead of answering my questions or commenting on the issues that i raise.
Let us continue our conversation and try to understand if we can educate Adobe to reverse course. Microsoft just did that, with XBox one. Apple did that when they opened the SDK of the iPhone 3 to third party developers. If we understand the real reason behind Adobe's move, then we can unite and apply pressure.
So far, your comments have been off the mark:
. Stopping piracy
. Complexity of maintaining two separate branches of each application
If the reason is for some key executives of Adobe to spin-off an independent entity, that licenses the software source and commercialize an offering geared toward photographers (Knoll knock-knock), we can help accelerate this with so many possibilities, from financing to committing to purchase or write books etc...
My SPECULATION is that Adobe miscalculated, and leadership is too proud to admit it. They are leaving money on the table!
Now you can also join us in understanding the situation, rather than use your infrequent/frequent contacts with one or two executives at Adobe, and claim that you know the full story.
I tell you: even the Adobe leadership staff is still trying to understand what they really did.
