I'm a mac and I'm a PC
This sounds like a religion fight... my god is the only and good one so I'm going to kill you because you think differently and you're wrong!... or ... I'm better 'cose I have a MAC... no I'm better 'cose I have a PC... not really making any progress here :-(
Both are computers.... hence.. both have their problems and their advantages. I personnally prefer my Mac to my previous Dell... eventhough it does have some problems and is a little touchier since Leopard... but does that give me the right to insult and reduce anyone who runs and prefers a PC. I think not!
The subject here is about someone offering another product than the one his company sells. Generally not done, but amusing... end of story... no need to get into a "holy war"!
Make yourself heard!!!
Just like all of you, I'm disgusted at the Adobe pricing strategy. And their answer to us is an insult to our intelligence.
Unless you REALLY need the upgrade, hold it out... the only pressure we have on Adobe is if we don't buy their products.
Of course we can purchase it from the US, but then US sales go up, EU sales go down and this will give them an even bigger excuse for keeping our prices up (oh, you know, it costs a lot more to do business in Europe...)
I started a petition that already has 3'000 signatures. I will be sending these results to Adobe, to the EU & Swiss commissions and to the anti-piracy associations, as well as the press.
If you really want to do something... please sign our petition and DON'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM!
