I just spent a couple of completely unproductive hours on the phone with Adobe technical support. They were unable to help me with my newly installed Creative Cloud package but thanked me “for choosing Adobe.” HA!
“Choice” suggests there are other viable options. From my perspective, that of the Commercial Artist, Adobe is the only game in town, thus a Monopoly. To underscore the point, the image for this post was created in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
