I was contacted by the reseller that my company uses earlier today and it turns out that only it will be either all or nothing, no picking-and-choosing.
We here use FM, Acrobat Professional and may be getting into InDesign in the future, but we have no need -- and do not see a need in the future -- for all of the other stuff. And it appears, from an e-mail from my reseller, that we may be SOL regarding upgrades to our currently licensed software in the not-too-distant future: ? * 15 new CC apps including Adobe Photoshop CC, Adobe InDesign CC, Adobe Illustrator CC and more will be made available to all CCT users by June17th ? *Adobe has confirmed any future enhancements for their creative products will be available through their CCT offering only (boldfacing mine) ? * CCT Packager available for centralized IT deployment ? * New LOWER price for your additional copies effective NOW thru 8/31/2013. ($480 MSRP) By the way, the reseller my company uses is very straight-up and hasn't steered us wrong in the past, so nothing against them. -- Ken in Atlanta ________________________________ From: "Dave.Stamm at gdc4s.com" <dave.st...@gdc4s.com> To: framers at lists.frameusers.com Sent: Mon, May 13, 2013 9:03:21 AM Subject: RE: Corporate madness - Adobe software to be subscription only 2013-05-13-01T13:00Z There's that death knell again . . ..

TCS/FrameMaker could follow? I do wonder whether the accountants that run large corporates like Adobe understand how important their software is to the countless thousands of freelances who have to scrape every last penny to buy it - but at least then they own something, not vapor that goes phut as soon as you stop paying for it. For the last two decades FrameMaker, Illustrator, Acrobat and Dreamweaver have been the rocks underpinning what I do. I'm far less sure about the future, though. -- Steve [somewhat aghast] _______________________________________________ You are currently subscribed to framers as Dave.Stamm at gdc4s.com.
