I don’t recall ever having this particular discussion with you regarding Adobe and the software as a service business model, or what caused it. The reason there is often no resolution is in large part because you add words and meaning where non existed in the first place, which in turn create new straw men arguments over and over again.
For example, you just claimed I said “Adobe and its customers are ruining software today”. No where did I even remotely make that claim. You took a tongue and cheek comment which flipped “software solutions” to “software problems” and correlated that with absolute ruin. That is not a logical conclusion to come to.
I never claimed Adobe or even its customers were ruining the industry. In fact I never even referred to the customers (from which I used to be one) at all, you added that straw man. I referred only to Adobe and Allegorithmic.
There is no end to debates or responses when people twist and distort what was said in order to create straw men they feel comfortable attacking, then move the goal post or flee when pressed for specifics on the subjects that were mentioned. Of course it never ends. (rolls eyes)
On that note, there is a lot of dislike for Adobe and now Allegorithmic for a reason. Their videos on the Susbtance 3D lineup are overwhelmingly voted down, and nearly 90% of the commentary is negative. The fact remains the direction Allegorithmic through Adobe has gone is visibly not liked by a large part of their (current and former) user base.
