A well-reasoned piece on the recent news that Adobe’s Creative Suite is becoming Creative Cloud, a subscription service.
Absent in most of the opinions I’ve read on this matter is any weighing of competitive products. Certainly Photoshop has low-priced, excellent competition on the App Store (Acorn, Pixelmator). But other products like After Effects and Lightroom have few competitors. Kind of a crappy dilemma, especially for occasional or hobbyist users.
