Adobe Introduces Creative Suite 5.5; Subscription Pricing

Adobe has introduced Creative Suite 5.5, a bundled package that offers all of Adobe’s designing and editing software in a single package. Adobe also planning to offer software rental options, allowing individuals to rent Adobe software, as well as plans for enterprise and student users. The Flash maker is considering offering its software to rent both on an annual basis, paid monthly, or a (more expensive) month-to-month payment plan. Rented software will check into Adobe servers every 30 days in order to check the credit card being used by the user is still valid and to make an automatic payment. If the card is not valid or has been removed by the user, the user gets a 5-day grace period for making the payments after which the software will cease to operate. http://www.adobe.com/
