Re: Oh, yeah...
Why they cannot allow people to make up their own minds is beyond me. Shoving it down peoples throats is not helping their case.
I'd call it a clear sign of desperation. They *know* the ship is sinking because year on year they're cashing less and have more and more trouble flogging their warez - that's what drives that desperate need to move to subscription services.
The problem is that Adobe's move to subscription services has already started to fuel a whole ecosystem of replacements, and Microsoft too has the problem that it's no longer the only game in town. Get too expensive and they'll make it worth the pain to switch, and I'm having a feeling Apple is calmly playing for that.
All they have to do is wait..
