OT: Corel offering alternative to CC and special upgrade pricing.

This is starting to remind me of one of the best things that happened to Apple -- MS Vista. When Vista came out I decided that my next computer would be a Mac.

    How do you spell shameless?

    Seriously, I don't blame them for trying to grab customers any way they can. It's a tough business made tougher by the fact that most of Adobe's products are flat out superior to anything else around.

    Nancy, Adobe did the same thing when they saw an opportunity against Final Cut Pro not too long back.  I agree, that Corel is not a serious competitor.  Not even a full Mac suite. And I'm not sure of the point being made about Vista.  I've been using a Mac since OSX (10.0) well before Vista, back into the early Win XP years.  Looking back was Vista that bad that it made people go Mac?
