FM, TC, CC Cloudy Crystal Ball

Needing a new version of FM and Acrobat at least, and wanting a credible path to HTML, and probably ebook, which implies RoboHelp, I'm looking at getting a retail copy of TC4 for home use. An upgraded Illustrator is fine too.

 

The TC4 bundle is a more attractive deal than parts-is-parts, some of which may be locked in the cloud now anyway. The rest of the TC bundle is not compelling.

 

The TC4 versions of Acrobat (X) and Illustrator (CS6) are not current. Acro is now XI and Illustrator is now version "CC". The vintage doesn't bother me so much as what that anachronism implies.

 

My guess is that TC4 is unlikely to be upgraded to bundle newer versions of anything now imprisoned in the cloud. Anyone have alternative insights?

 

FM and RH are not presently available via cloud, only via classic perpetual licence. But I'm thinking that unless CC becomes a bigger cloudburst than it has already, Adobe will eventually consign all products to that time-bombed gulag in the sky. Any guesses on when this might happen?

 

And any guesses on how much longer retail TC4 will be available?

    My TCS Acrobat is XI, but I never noticed about Illustrator being stuck in the past.  I'm still not over the Photoshop debacle, so this annoys me just a bit more.

    We pay £54.80 (not including VAT) per month for a year subscription.

     

    I have had no problems with the service so far, but it isn't cloud based so I only need internet access for updates (except for Illustrator, obviously).

     

    I must admit, I quite like Bridge and I've started using Captivate now. Both good products imo.
