Yes, I agree the subscription crap was horrible for individuals and smaller businesses. Their pricing scheme assumes we update every 18 months minimum. We often went 2-4 years before upgrades in most of our apps. Now, we're bound to the subscription just for contract requirements that need the latest but as a single user it really is horrible. I do love the apps though =\
Oh, I love InDesign and I'm dragging my feet trying to learn the differences in Affinity's suite so I can cut the Adobe cord. ID is just so ingrained in how I think about layout now.

But yeah, even if it IS tax deductible, for me it's just over $20 a month for InDesign alone!

Ha! I don't make those mistakes, since I've been using InDesign and *full* Acrobat for a long time. I did just give up on Acrobat for Foxit PDF, though. I'm a fan of one-time purchases where I can get them without losing features I need.

ADOBE IS GREAT
Big Perm, I mean Worm.
I'm currently upgrading my inexpensive 13" eBay MacBook Pro (High Sierra) for a newer, better 13" eBay MacBook Pro (Big Sur). Needed the newer OS to run one lousy piece of software, but won't mind having twice the RAM and twice the storage space, I guess.

Still not my main computer, though.
Big Slurp?
Big Sur should have been called Big Slur.
It has take almost 3 days to get them updated, so if anyone wants to come pull this ice pick out of my eye head on over.
