The Creative Cloud subscription service from Adobe allows users to pay a monthly fee to have access to one or every available product. This ranges from Photoshop, to Illustrator, to After Effects, to Audition, to Dreamweaver. This one subscription follows you, via your Adobe account, through every platform… that they support. Currently, that's Mac and Windows.
To expand that, they are now experimenting with a streaming service, bringing Photoshop to Chrome.
How it works is simple: send Currently, it is limited to Google Chrome on Windows and ChromeOS. Also, the servers do not currently support GPU-acceleration, but Adobe has already announced plans for that in the future. I assume that when this is a consumer product, or shortly thereafter, it will be a fully-featured application. Who knows, maybe they will even bring the rest of their products there? "Streaming access to Photoshop with other products coming soon" …
People may remember that I was very much against services like OnLive and Gaikai. These do the same thing as Adobe, but for video games. Being an outspoken (to the say least) supporter of art, I found this to be an unacceptable sacrifice for intrinsically valuable content. It is a terrible idea to allow a service to pull your content and replace it, especially for scholarly review in the future.
This is different. While I would always prefer a local application, and would be upset if they stopped offering those, I do not mind having a utility be served from a virtualized instance. If I was working on serious, trade-secret-level content, then I would want to avoid it. On the other hand, getting it to work in one web browser might encourage them to bring the service to all browsers.
From there, Linux and other platforms might just have a valid way to access Adobe's Suite.
I still support open-source
I still support open-source Android in mobile. But I never thought I’d support Microsoft again, especially not due to openness.
Right now, I’m on Android on my phone, OS X Mountain Lion on my MBP, and Windows 7 on my DIY desktop. When Windows 10 hits, I’ll upgrade my desktop to that and after that I’ll switch to SteamOS when it gets here to end the game between open and closed.
Google can shove ChromeOS and Adobe can shove Creative Cloud where the sun don’t shine.
I will not touch win 10,
I will not touch win 10, until they remove all that bing stuff from the OS, my private system file searches and any system searching should not be connected to the cloud, M$, or anyone’s cloud, unless I have enabled the connection.
M$ is forcing this cloud integration, and the Tiles, and social, and crAPP store, can just F-off, 7 will serve you fine until 2020, and Steam OS will take it from there. MY PCs, and Laptops are not an XBONE, so don’t XBONE the PC ecosystem, M$! 10 = X, and X + BONE, means bend over X amount of degrees and get ready for the BONE!
Is there someway to block
Is there someway to block internet access to the OS but still allow it for applications? Like “Little Snitch” for the Mac.
im wondering if anyone even
im wondering if anyone even knows anything about windows 10 or they just bang on their keyboards and run around outside screaming.
win 10 just hit dev preview…people act like its phucking cast into stone.
I really do not like removing
I really do not like removing comments, but I just got rid of two. One was quite lewd, the other was a reference to the first in objection (leaving no reason to keep it). Even some of the comments that I kept (above) are dicey.
Keep it civil, everyone!
