Have you upgraded to Adobe Creative Cloud?

By Mike Jackson

Posted on Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Adobe announced their Creative Cloud option in the fall of 2011. It replaced the traditional model of buying a perpetual license to software with one payment with a subscription-based approach. Instead of installing the software from a CD or DVD then paying for upgrades for future versions, you pay one monthly fee for as long as you use the software.

Over the past four years, the company has released several new versions through this subscription-based service. Adobe faced substantial backlash initially, and criticism still persists about their direction. However, statistics from TechCrunch state the new subscription-based model has now surpassed 3.9 million subscribers. Perpetual licenses soon appear to be a thing of the past for Adobe.

Love ’em or leave ’em?
