Adobe Offers Subscription Software

Rate this Entry
Adobe has announced a new subscription model for the CS3 Design Premium package. It's a small start, apparently only available in Australia, but it's a sign of where things are headed in the software world.

Whether or not a subscription plan is beneficial will depend on your situation. In many cases it will be more expensive in the long run without offering any real advantages. However a lot of people will find subscriptions to be much cheaper and more convenient.

For example, let's say you have a short-term project requiring half a dozen staff for a couple of months. With a subscription you can purchase multiple software licenses just for the duration of the project.

In my case I have the Adobe Master Collection for PC, and it's prohibitively expensive to transfer it to my Mac. A subscription might make the transition a lot less painful.
