There seems to be enough people mad about Adobe moving over to subscription plans instead of their perpetual licenses; however, should they be upset?
In attempts to bring order out of this technical chaos, CNET sat down and put together some actual comparisons to see if the anger was deserved.
And survey says, It depends. In all honesty, the creative cloud isn’t that bad of a deal not a bad deal for power users or middle-end customers who upgrade to Adobe’s latest releases.
Just for one example they gave, if a customer was planning on three years’ use of the Design Standard version of CS6, it would cost them $1,648 and would include Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Acrobat Pro. With the Creative Cloud, that same customer would pay $1,800 for three years’worth of software; however, the extra $152 would also give that same customer Premiere Pro, After Effects, Flash Pro, Edge Animate, Muse, Lightroom, Dreamweaver, Audition, and various online services.
Choosing the Creative Cloud should be a no-brainer when looking at the CS6 Production Premium package. The Adobe CS6 Production Premium package is like the CS6 Design Standard but also with Premiere Pro, After Effects, Speedgrade, Audition, and Flash Professional. The price for the premium package is $2,273 for an original version and update, $625 more than the subscription and with less software and no online services.
