Where are you (country)? From what I've been told, the $99 will be available in
places like college/university stores. I'd contact an educational reseller of Adobe
software for more info.
Director Lecturer / Consultant / Director Enthusiast
I'm told this is available in US, UK and probably elsewhere. However, these are not available for download, to prevent any misuse. Students may have to produce their student identity, at the time of purchase from retailers...
I posted this reply via Usenet a few days ago, but it seems doing so yields a post that is only viewable by others who use standard Newsreaders, not those who read this forum. So please excuse the (possible) repetition:
I usually buy my academic software from online retailers. I just checked a few of my usual sources (where I've purchased Photoshop and Lightroom):
AcademicSuperstore.com has it listed... But for $294.95
JourneyEd.com has it also. $298.98
campustech.com shows it at $294.85
The other company I've dealt with, sprysoft.com, still shows only the
old version on their web site.
So it would appear that the anticipated $99.00 pricing scheme isn't in effect yet. (I also have students waiting for it.)
Still no sign of the promised $99.00 student version. Anyone heard anything about time of availability and/or sources of purchase. All the usual academic software places are still showing close to $300.00 and the semester is drawing to a close.
