This poll is pretty self-explanatory. Just curious what other folks are thinking about Adobe's latest move.
If you aren't aware, apparently Adobe is changing their business model with the next iteration of Photoshop. Beginning next month you will no longer be able to buy a boxed (or download) full version or upgrades of Photoshop. CS6 will be the last version sold that way.
From here on out, Photoshop "CC" will only be sold via subscription, where you make a monthly payment to use the software. The cost currently is $20 US per month for Photoshop CC alone. The full "Creative Cloud" experience (multiple apps plus storage and more) is $50 US per month. There are discount plans for current CS users... around 40% off for the first year (if signed up by July 31, 2013) It varies a little depending upon which version of CS you have... The short-lived CS6 owner will get a little more of a discount than users of CS3 through CS5.5. Photoshop versions earlier than CS3 don't qualify for any discount. See adobe.com for details. I ain't here to market their stuff for them, just giving the generalities as they relate to this poll.
There appear to be several reasons Adobe is doing this... to push through updates more quickly and seamlessly, to help reduce/prevent piracy, more mobile users, etc. Of course, there's bound to be a profit motive in there somewhere, too!
So, what do you plan to do?
Edit: Yes, there are some polls and commentary about this elsewhere on the Internet... Just wonderin' what the POTN folks are thinking.
