  • I’m frustrated
    Considering Adobe's recent move to subscription-only CS, I'm no longer interested in their products at all. I believe they're moving in the wrong direction. I can only hope to see someone step up to properly compete against them. I'm also unsubscribing from this issue since I just can't care anymore.

    Why do we pay for license for windows or pay for MAC for use Adobe Suite??? using Linux we just would pay Adobe Suite Licensing....

    P/D: Sorry for my bad english...

  • SEND YOUR MESSAGE TO SHARE HOLDERS BLOGS, NOT TECH BLOGS!!!

    If you want to get Adobe's attention, don't contact the insiders, contact the share holders.

    To do that, take your comments to Wall Street blog comments for news stories about Adobe Business. If everyone on this thread searches Google for a current news story about ADBE, like "ADBE market news", and posts a comment on the news story, you can indirectly get the attention of Adobe through the shareholders.

    If it is greed that drives them threaten their cookie jar.

    I posted my first here:

    Hi Caty,

    We've gotten no satisfaction from Adobe on this, so could you post a link on this thread, and the original thread to this:

    https://getsatisfaction.com/adobe/top...

    That might get more attention from Adobe and its shareholders.

    Thanks,

    Larry

  • Adobe simply doesn't do Linux development. If we want to see CS on Linux, we need to show it. A Kickstarter campaign is the way to go.

  • I’m annoyed
    Even though running on WINE is fine (I guess), it'll never reach the performance of a native application.
    Seriously, just target Linux and provide binaries. Linux users are used to not having corporate support.. at least I am.

  • I’m Exasperated
    My company does more than $300,000/year in web design work. We would LOVE to us Adobe CS6, would even be willing to help fund the project. But our company uses Linux exclusively. So unless Adobe gets their heads out of their asses and starts supporting Linux, rapidy growing firms like mine will continue to ignore Adobe & support their competitors! Just as Adobe does to us!
    BTW, in case you are curious, we put our money where our mouth is. In the past 5 years, we have donated more than $500,000 to various open source Adobe alternatives like Gimp, Blender, Audacity,& OpenShot.

  • i have replaced all adobe products with awesome and very effective open source products because Adobe has failed to get this sorted. Only reason i would stay with Adobe is there is NO equivalent to After Effects even in the commercial world...very sad.

    Adobe please bring after effects to Linux.

  • A CALL TO ACTION: ENOUGH WHINING!
    I dont mean to sound harsh, but as Linux users, maybe it is time we stop whining about Adobe's refusal to bring Creative Suite to Linux! The cold hard fact is it will very likely NEVER happen. So instead of wasting our time whining, why not develop a Linux Creative Suite to rival Adobe CS????
    There are dozends of forums, blogs, etc with thousands of comments around the web bitching about this. So there is obviously an interest here. The thing is, (as I have said before) we dont even need to start from scratch. We already have many of the tools available: Gimp, Audacity,kdenlive/openshot, etc! We now need to integrate the existing tools together & add a few features that are missing.
    I have tried to get this started in the past, but all I ever get is "it cant be done" or "it wont work" or other crybaby bs crap! Linux has some of the best developers in the world! So dont give me this crap that we cant do it!
    & dont give me his crap about it would have to be free & linux users wont pay for it but its too costly to build it! That is more whiny negatvism. There are plenty of paid Linux apps that do VERY well. We can either charge for the suite itself, or for support.
    So here is my call for action, again:
    If there are any devlopers reading this who want a Linux Creative Suite to become a reality, contact me! I will provide officilal bAacking of my comoany. This will include a free website for the project with the ability to collect donations, feedback, etc. I will provide a platform for developer around the world who wish to participate.
    We must begin with a plan. I am willing to provide a platform for us to get this started! Are you willing to stop whining & start acting???

    There are tools to rival CS. Not as integrated and likely will never be. But as a Linux user I have stopped using Adobe aps for the past 12 months and my development time was initially increased slightly; however, it is not shorter, smoother, and quicker than it ever was with Adobe and Windblows.

    Cheers,
    Bye bye adobe...
    You will be missed but not needed.

  • Adobe's products, software wise are PRODUCTIVITY software. These applications are used to produce another product: videos, images, web assets, etc.

    But tools are only as usefull as the craftsmanship of the artist. If the artist, be he/she a web developer, cinematographer, or whatever does not properly grasp the structure and scope of the product they are creating then they will be chained to a particular tool. What is worse: they will not be able to grow as an artist.

    If you're an artist in one field or another, as was mentioned earlier, find a programmer or two. Put out a call on as many venues as you have to. Collaborate and help create a tool that meets or even surpasses your current expectations.

    If that intimidates too much there is another way. There are already so many projects that could use the insight of someone with practical, and moreover, professional experience. Helping an existing project to mature to a higher level may bring forth the very thing that you desire.

    For myself, I often scour the internet looking to see what tools other people use. I know many individuals have an unreasonable attachement to certain tools. While others simply use what they can find that best suits the current need. When someone looks, and doesn't find they ask others. If they still cannot find, then instead of wasting time, they MAKE.

    In any case, all this complaining against Adobe only serves to validate the idea that they have no real competition. Those who are succeeding with different tools are likely not going to post here. They are busy producing with these other tools, and perhaps only giving posts like this a breif glance.

    William: a reasoned approach, thank you. What's needed is a way in which we can share information. Trying to move InDesign-created pdf to Scribus has not worked for me. Gimp seems OK, but I need to work at it. Audition still ranks highly, but I need to explore more. I'd love to know of any video software, and App software that works with iTunes.

    We can do it - I use Libre Office instead of the MS suite all the time, it is better.

    If Adobe will not play ball - we can all help to make another system.

    Negotiation often means that an alternative is seen to be available. If Adobe understand what we are saying, and doing, they may be prompted to act. This thread cannot just be a place to plead to Adobe - they are too arrogant to notice.

    I have bought two master suites in the past, and have had a license to PS, plus a few others, since sometime in the late 90s when I was in school. I used flash since it was macromedia's baby. Ive been a long time Adobe advocate and lover, and most of my business is spent using their software. I finally had it and cancelled both my CC subscriptions 4 months ago as it had been holding up my switch to Ubuntu. Ive been 100% Ubuntu since, and never looked back.

    That said, although Ive been using OSS alternatives for Adobe, Id rather not. Its not nearly enough to make me switch back to windows, and I'll sure never use mac, but it ticks me off to no end that they ignore the obvious need for a linux version. Id switch back in a heartbeat if they did.

    Hell, dont make it for Linux, take the lazy way out and just make it work on WINE. Im fine with that. I spent 3 days trying to force the Adobe Application Manager to work under WINE before giving up.

    Bottom line, a lot of customers here want to go to linux, or lost patience and left you, due to this and there's an easier fix than re-writing everything if that is, for some reason, the hold up.

    Just a kind reminder: Do not forget to tick the "plus" on the original thread as well to avoid splitting the big number.

    I met with a high ranked Adobe employer at IBC. Main problem is that Adobe and it's staff seem to act inappropriately arrogant. I told her that a lot of people are wishing for a Linux Version on the internet. Her response (and I quote): "People on the internet are freaks".

    It seems as if high ranked Adobe employees have not even heard about the fact that 70% of all people know how to use the internet and are participating. So how could we wish for a Linux version?

    My opinion regarding wine:
    I don't think that's a good idea. Adobe already ships an osx-version. Porting to a major Linux version like red hat or ubuntu should not be too hard. ATM it seems as if it's all about money. Why care about only ~15.000 customers (oh god, I wished I had 15.000 customers)?

    Let's see how Valve will stir up the Linux-pot...

  • I think that there'll be a lot more than 15k customers. As gaming is coming to linux with valve and people are getting interested in linux, i think it's the right time for adobe to port a version to ubuntu and redhat

    I've Hackintoshed to build a computer that would do things I want to do, and shortly thereafter Apple destroyed the viability of their post-production software with the cluster that was Final Cut ProX. Adobe is the ONLY real alternative now, UNLESS AVID goes Ubuntu because Windows Sux. It just flat out sux, and I'm tired of tweaking Mac's OS when Ubuntu runs Unix just as well, with a lot less of the virus and malware problems associated with Windows.

    BlackMagic Design has given us Resolve in Linux, now if they would release just a software version it would be awesome, but its just a Unix port from your Mac version. You guys can do it. Why haven't you?

    Professionals aren't going to pay the Mac tax anymore, and Windows sux, so they are headed to Ubuntu. Do It! Port to Linux!

  • With the huge problems of Mavericks I hope Adobe will rethink cause a lot pro users as me rethink currently of a switch. I ́m switching now to Debian & Windows as I need CC.
