    Stolen from a Reddit poster:

    Abode CS5 Win/Mac has a vulnerability that could allow somoene to take control of a user's machine. Their solution? Buy CS6.

    That's asking for piracy surely?

    Heh that's pretty shrewd. People will just pirate it though.

    Or just stick to CS3, it's not like they've added anything of any great value in the last 3 major updates. I remember hearing from somebody that Adobe are pretty much screwed long-term because half of their software is dying out, and the rest doesn't have much room for improvement.

    I watched the first half of Tomorrow Never Dies the other day, and at the start the baddie is talking to his Evil Team; be asks one if they've gotten their computer operating system ready yet, and the goon replies, "Yes, it's shipping now. The thing is so full of bugs they'll be paying for u

The thing is so full of bugs they'll be paying for upgrades for years!" or something similar.

    Basically, Adobe are clearly following the advice of Bond villans. Watch out for the Adobe secret base under the volcano.

    More like they can't improve something because everyone will complain that they have to learn better workflows instead of the shitty old ones they're used to.

    @Pirotic

    The content-aware functionality is pretty great tbh, albeit nothing truly essential.

    I've only used cs6 photoshop but it seems a reasonable step from 5. Certainly more than 4 to 5

    "Gotten" is perfectly valid British-English. It should be used to indicate acquirement rather than ownership. It's one of those supposed Americanisms that actually isn't one. So thrrrrp.

    Just because we used it 500 years ago doesn't mean it is valid in this country now, stop being a pseud ;)

    Hey, if someone's going to be a grammar pedant, I'd prefer it to be accurate. Call me the Grammar Nazi's Nazi. Or something.

    It is accurate that gotten isn't 'perfectly valid' in this country at this point in time, and to be really pedantic it isn't particularly anything to do with grammar either.

    I doubt there are many words at all that the Americans have genuinely introduced themselves
  • Deleted user 10 May 2012 23:56:41
    You not liking it doesn't really make it invalid in whatever country you happen to be in, you know...

    "Gotten" is a perfectly valid form of the past participle.

    If you are going to start bitching about Americanisms, then please remember why English is the international language. It certainly has little to do with the Queen and Eastenders.
  • Deleted user 11 May 2012 00:04:00
    Not often used != not valid. A dictionary lookup suggests it's relatively common to hear it oop north.

    Yes, I'm being very pedantic here, but I'm making a point.

    Anyway, we've forgotten (arf) the point of the article, which was about Adobe's ill-gotten (arf) upgrade schemes.

    Forgotten is the PP and "gotten" in ill-gotten is an adjective... but anyway. :)

    Fuck yes. Have a look on youtube for the CS6 videos, it's capable of mind blowing shit now. To the point where a child could do retouch and manip work in minutes that would have taken me a day in previous versions.

    I know a guy that, to upgrade his designers from cs3 to cs5, flew to NY, stayed in a hotel, bought his software, flew back and still saved himself a few thousand.

    It's no wonder the rest of my clients pirate it.

    It'd be easier to get someone in the US to buy the software and send the serial keys in an e-mail. I expect that's illegal for some reason though.

    It would, but then you don't get a weekend in NY as a business expense.
