Adobe is now writing people who are still using older versions of their software, and have paid for it, that they will be sued if they continue.

The computer revolution is not turning out as we were promised. Both government and private industry uses them to spy on us and to loot out pocketbooks. Bastards.

This has come up before and unless something is different this time, this applies to Adobe Creative Cloud products which are subscription based products and can be discontinued at any time. I never liked their Creative Cloud setup for this and other reasons and only use the (more expensive) perpetual license (non subscription) retail versions.

Are they any programs that did not turn to subscription based?
