 Post subject: Is Adobe That Poor?
New postPosted: Wed Dec 28, 2011 11:28 am 

Hello Guys. Primarily, Happy Holidays to all of you. Hope all of you are in good health and spirit.

Now a little bit of what crossed my find a few days before. We all know Adobe make some of the finest softwares on earth. Period. It also makes huge, huge money from that. But what Adobe doesn't do is to provide free softwares to student. Yes they do give discounts, but discount != free. Say for example Microsoft gives it's professional tools completely free at no cost at all through their dreamspark program. Autodesk gives free software through their students community. But poor Adobe......it needs more money. So it charges. Now that is my view. What do all of you think?

Don't get me wrong; free is nice but I think they have no obligation to, so why should they? Adobe are also pretty business orientated, students are probably not even a blip on their radar.

Of course you are correct Stu. Thanks for your input.

I thought it was the opposite actually ...

Adobe's software is very (very) easy to crack, and someone told me that they did this so that students would download their software and learn the program inside out. Then, when they start working, their employer will need to purchase the software (or upgrade to the latest version) so that the student can work quickly and most efficiently.

Not saying cracks are good :P

I'm surprised for a person with two (2) Genuine Stars talking about "CRACKS" on this forum, which was listed as "UNACCEPTABLE." Any form of hack or crack (Piracy) should be banned from this site, Period. If you know how to be the Pirate, keep it to yourself and go on Warez sites and keep out the Piracy talk and hacking from this site.

The key points are clear in what Jeet was saying, FREE software for students are the naysayers today because not everyone have the money, and many wants to stay ETHICAL without the need to CRACK/Hack software to become piracy. It's hard for people to stay ethical then to be unethical.

Frankly, Stu is correct, while many companies has no obligation whatsoever to product a free version of their software. It could be because so many people are cracking their software that leads to piracy, thus can lead to malware. It's a tough world out there Jeet, we all got to pay for things we want and need to make out computing fun. With the role out of HTML5, I'm hoping that Adobe will be done for good. Also, I think Adobe is dumping Flash for AIR. That's what I heard....

Just my two cents

A very good point RicK, the HTML5 and Flash war. As we all know, iOS still has got no Flash support and yet very famous. I think Adobe really needs to think in a bit different way.....not to forget Silverlight. And about "cracks" harryboyne, I prefer to stay genuine. I use paint.net now and it's sufficiently powerful for me. I abhor piracy, so should anyone else !
