Adobe Creative Cloud 2019

16 October 2018 - 11:36 AM

I see that Adobe Creative Cloud apps have been given their annual fall upgrade.


I have the Photography Plan so the only apps (I hate that word) I have are Photoshop CC, Bridge CC and Lightroom Classic CC. My workstation runs Windows 7 Pro.


The interesting bits (to me at least) were the dropping of certain operating systems from the supported list. Specifically, Windows 8, 8.1 and early versions of Windows 10. A number of Mac OS versions were also dropped. For the moment at least, Windows 7 seems to still be on the supported list although Adobe is warning that going forward, this will NOT be the case.


I should point out that I'm not at all a fan of Windows 10. Yes, I use it... I have it installed on a laptop but I honestly think that Windows 7 looks far more polished. Windows 10 looks like something out of a Junior High coding class and, as Microsoft has pointed out, will soon be sold as a 'service' where you pay a subscription fee to keep it updated.


Anyway, my dilemma going forward, is whether to bite the bullet and upgrade (either by buying new hardware (the preferred method) or by upgrading the OS. I really pine for the years long ago when my PowerMac 8600 lasted for a decade even as many OS X early adopters dumped them for iMacs and whatnot. 


I suppose that I could return to Apple... but these days, money is a four letter word in this house.
