There’s quite a discussion on a mailing list I belong to about whether or not Adobe is shooting itself in the foot with its new Adobe Creative Cloud subscription-based business model. The folks who argue that Adobe has doomed itself to failure cite several other companies that have tried a similar business model and it proved to be their undoing.
Do you have an opinion about the decision Adobe made? Have you subscribed, or have you decided you will not ever subscribe? Are there stories about other companies that have tried this and failed – or succeeded – that you can share as examples?
