Welcome to the wonderful push towards rentng instead of owning software (yes yes I know the legal jargon says we don't technically own it)....

Problem is that CS5 was released before Windows 10.

So Adobe would have no support for software that wasn't designed for, or tested on an operating system that didn't exist when it was made.

That is actually Adobe's stance.

In terms of CC - it is tested and supported.

By the way - buying a license for a year of CC is actually cheaper than the original buying price - and upgrading.

With CC you're always up to date - but admittedly that makes you a guinea pig for new releases - which is why I don't upgrade my apps for about 3 months.


In general, I find it a great assistance to be a CC subscriber, with access to all their apps should I need them. It does come in handy.

Hey Microsoft are doing this too with MS Office - that's a bigger pain in the backside, which is why I went opensource for all my Ms Office needs or using google docs.

I don't agree with the Adobe CC subscription, but I understand that they need to do it, otherwise, someone buys something and has it for 6 years or forever, and they never get another penny. At least this way, they get their money, and get it every month/year, without having to wait 6 years for someone to upgrade.

It's understandable, but I do not agree with it wholly.

actually MS is pretty good value when you look at what you get for the price and compare it to some others. Obviously if you don't need 1TB of online storage etc then the value might not be there but then I'm still happily using office 2010.

I can't say I'm a fan of 'renting' software for long term use, it's fine for quick jobs etc where you need it for say a month but for people like us who use it day in day out type of thing I still prefer to 'own' my software. Sadly all the major 'monopoly' companies in most fields have cottoned on to this rental lark. Wouldn't be so bad if after a period of time (ie after full 'cost' of software or 3 years) you 'owned' a version of said software to continue using without updates but not many do that.

There's also the issue of renting it, in essence once they have everyone on rental the company can then stick whatever price they like on stuff because in most cases there are no other options. Lets be honest there is no 'industry standard' outside adobe in graphic design even if there is some decent alternatives out there. There's also nothing to say they'll do regular updates either, at least if you owned the software and there was no reason to upgrade you didn't need to pay out anything.... part of the reason a lot of us didn't upgrade on a regular basis was because the updates just weren't worth it.

I'm not a huge fan of Quark - I was trained in it, and transitioned to InDesign -and I have no plans to go back - but aparently Quark is quite decent again. And you can buy a version of Quark. http://content.quark.com/pdfToolbox...63pytTikdk1nkaLpG-1n7cxih-CNMGhBoCj4UQAvD_BwE

I'm waiting for Affinity to bring out their rival of InDesign - which should be very interesting.


I actually do like the CC subscription - and I think it works out about £50 a month - which I always come back to - if you're not making more profit than £50 a month then there's something seriously wrong.

I think for £50 a month you get access to all the apps. Which isn't a bad deal. Whereas with buying InDesign you only got that product, and you could buy InDesign, PS and Illy in a pack for a bit more. But that's all you got.


With CC you get all the apps - and they released a new version and it has a new App called Dimensions - allows 3d mockups of products - and Adobe Stock has a bunch of 3D objects you can get too for it.


There's pros and cons to CC - but I am seeing great benefits with it that far outweigh the negatives.



I think it would be a great idea to give people loyalty discounts for keeping their subscription active for 2 or 3 years, they should get a 10% discount or something.
