Adobe Announces New Creative Cloud Apps, Abandons Creative Suite
Adobe has decided to focus its resources on Creative Cloud and will not continue development on its Creative Suite software, reports The Next Web. While Creative Suite 6 will continue to be supported in regards to bug fixes, there will be no further updates and no Creative Suite 7.
Instead, the company has today announced several Creative Cloud apps at its Adobe MAX conference, including Photoshop CC, InDesign CC, Illustrator CC, Dreamweaver CC, and Premiere Pro CC.
Each of the apps has seen notable upgrades, as detailed by The Next Web. For example, Photoshop CC offers new features like Camera Shake reduction and Behance integration, which can be seen in the Adobe promo video below.
Adobe's Creative Cloud applications will launch this June. The company plans to offer current users of CS 3 and beyond a year of Creative Cloud at a discounted price.
According to Scott Morris (via TechCrunch), head of Adobe's Creative Cloud and Creative Suite teams, the shift will allow Adobe's engineers the "ability to focus," providing quicker updates and more innovative features in the future.

I do hope there's an uproar over this.

Interesting. I expect Microsoft will make a similar play in the near future, requiring everyone to subscribe to Office 365.

This is horrible. A big mistake.
If they keep this business model, a new company will come about and destroy Adobe.
You know what they say... once you go Mac you ain't never gonna go back.

This is the path all software is following. Office is already on its way. Expect most other apps to become subscription based. Best way to stop piracy. It's in every company's interest.

Not looking forward to having to rent my software forever. We are still using CS3 on most computers, and 5 on the rest, and getting by just fine. What incentive will adobe have to continue to update their products if they make the same amount per month if the software is never updated again or not? This is a crap proposition for a lot of consumers, although I could see it being an attractive option for some freelancers. But Cloud only. I don't like it.

I guess I will be clinging to my copy of cs6.
I have two questions
1) (having never used the online apps) how do they work? do you have too download anything or is it all simply login and use on any computer?
2) Didn't they just announce a beta for a new lightroom? I guess that will be there last one?

Complaining on the internet. The least you can do to change things short of doing nothing at all.

Sounds great, I love paying $20+/month for the rest of time instead of purchasing a license once to use indefinitely.
But seriously, I'm assuming this is just for Creative Suite and not for individual applications. For people who actually need the full CS, this may not be a horrible option. For people like me who use only one or two applications (Acrobat, mostly), I hope the existing option remains available.

So for someone like me who upgraded his Creative Suite Design Standard (because I don't need the other programms) every 2-3 years it is now almost three times more expensive.
And if I stop paying I can't open my files anymore.
I'll stay with CS6 for quite a while that's for sure.
I do hope not too many people buy this so that Adobe has to deliver a different solution.
Anyone still using QuarkXPress? Might be worth a try if all else fails ...
