He he he. So it's fair game for Adobe to rip off other companies, but look out if you accidentally do something quite innocently with their product. Or should that be, not do something?FYI, it's a bit more complex, and potentially not directly an issue that Adobe has with users...
Well... Are you using Adobe products? If you are, you should be very aware by now that their latest versions are full of bugs. As a PAYING customer I'm not willing to be a beta tester for their incomplete software so I always stay behind a version (or two). Which reminds me I should make a snapshot of my Windows drive next weekend and try to update my Photoshop. Last time I had to revert back and haven't tried updating again since December(?).I'm having a hard time understanding why, having paid for the subscription, one would not keep the installation up to date, thus avoiding this particular problem altogether. This seems to me like an edge case about which most of us have little to worry.
Yes, succeeding in spite of themselves.You've seen their quarterly and annual business results, right?
They're nowhere near circling the drain...
To the general consumer, their business model sucks. That's why I voted with my dollar, and decided to stop purchasing Adobe products when they went subscription-only (I'll still use LR6 for the occasional task here or there, mainly Pano-stitching or HDR-merging).Yes, succeeding in spite of themselves.
Not that they are circling the drain, but they seem to have it in their business plan, and are trying hard to get there.
