    I think it'd be more effective indeed to just sell them single-copy, one product buying.

    People are so choosy about what CS software they want, and there are so many boxed sets, might as well just sell them individually.

    I remember CS4 taking forever to install from the disk. Only thing I can think of that took longer was maybe Final Cut Pro.

    News stories like this are so "uplifting". They kind of make me glad I'm old. This is your subscription to the future, being tethered to Adobe's teat, enjoy it. Or maybe I should say, "suck it up".

    One refreshing thing about newcomers here, is their innocence and naivete, which unfortunately tends to border on delusionality.

    Actually now the margin now between DVD and download is ten bucks or so. Which I'm sure you've heard, will feed a family in Indonesia or Sub-Sarahan Africa for at least a month and a half.

    Sadly, it won't do much past squat for you or I.....:mad:
