Default Adobe creative cloud

We knew this was coming, and here's the announcement. So it looks as if I'll be staying on my current versions, partly because using the cloud is very expensive when you have limited bandwidth.

This interesting take on it popped up on my Twitter feed just now.

I joined Twitter quite a few years ago when Marjolein was recommending it, but didn't use it. Now I'm finding it both interesting and informative. You have to learn to scan the feed quickly, but I am finding lots of gems from my select groups of tweeters.

I've thought about using Twitter but that's as far as it's gotten...'-}}

I did spend the last hour or so browsing comments on this at ArsTechnica which interestingly enough does not have any of the "oh it's wonderful!" comments I read in the link you posted (Fast Company). Even people who currently do use the subscription approach think that making that the only approach is a mistake. People are comparing Adobe's announcement to the one Netflix (do you guys hae Netflix? If not, it's a dvd/movie rental company) made about going download only which backfired big time on them. It will be interesting to see what Adobe does--if anything.

I had 10 Colorsync Users list digests in my Inbox today. Before I opened the first digest, I couldn't figure out why I had so many digests--usually get one/day--but then it made sense when I saw the Subject of most posts was "The Creative Gouge"...'-}}

Yes, it's all over everything to do with publishing...
