*Adobe Moves Creative Suite to Cloud-Based Service 
Adobe's decision to change how they provide their Creative Suite 
programs and services impacts creative professionals everywhere. Artist 
with little need to stay at the cutting edge are not pleased about the 
switch from direct product sales to a cloud-based subscription service, 
preferring to retain the option of purchasing the software outright as 
has been the case in the past. Other artist who use many of the packages 
that Adobe produces and always looking for improved features may find 
the new sheme more attractive. Adobe has descriptions of all the 
components here.

There are numerous online commentaries, pro and con, about this 
changeover. Get the facts about the change and decide for yourself where 
you stand.
