No thanks to badly designed, overpriced software that you have to keep paying for forever or you lose access to your data, (and can't use your new camera) – which also happens if you don't have internet connectivity, or if Adobe goes out of business, which hopefully will be soon.

Now how about some serious competition to Adobe?

See, Adobe Creative Cloud: "The Main Point ... when I stop paying, I don’t just lose access to the software, I lose access to my files" [and] Adobe reserves the right to blacklist you, and refuse you service entirely.

"Adobe Rental Software with half-assed internet features that I want like I want syphilis, with a built-in kill switch at Adobe’s option."

Petitioning ... Adobe Systems Incorporated: Eliminate the mandatory "creative cloud" subscription model.

"stand up to Adobe"

"people want to have a choice"

"upgrade at gun point"

"I will not continue with the Adobe brand. It's suicide for a small business model."

"Adobe is screwing freelancers and small business owners"

"an unbelievably shameless move to capitalize on Adobe's dominant market position ... abusing their monopoly"

"I don't want to be held hostage to a subscription model, where I have to continue paying in order to access files I have created."

"Shame on you Adobe!"

"Not okay."

"Join Creative Cloud and Adobe owns your projects from here on out."

"stop this plan to discriminate against remote rural users"

"This is outrageous."

"completely insane."

"I hope they fail miserably"

"shameful move by Adobe"

"hope Adobe sees the folly "

"I prefer to own my software and decide for myself when to upgrade."

"Either I own or forget it."

"will have to switch brands"

"complete suicide for a small business model"

"if you want me to buy upgrades ... then give me compelling improvements"

"Adios Adobe... "

Today, yet another announcement that "Adobe has identified a critical vulnerability ... "

With security vulnerabilities announced constantly, why does anyone continue to put up with Adobe's incompetence?

Good riddance Adobe!

Subject: Adobe involved in spying on us:

"I was surprised to learn that Adobe is also designing software products for use in government surveillance ... "

"From the Adobe Insight white paper:"

" ... individuals, corporations, organizations, and governments all generate huge volumes of data. Every phone call, credit card transaction, and visit to a website creates a data point that is collected and stored ... "

"FWIW, Adobe, Inc. is building a large service center in Lehi, UT (a short distance from the new NSA data warehouse in Bluffdale) and actively hiring hundreds to staff it."
