I subscribed to Adobe CC and am only using Illustrator and Photoshop mostly. In Switzerland, I get charged 85 USD /month - more than 1000 USD per year – for something that I still don't own and if I quit, I won't be able to open my files anymore.
This makes me so upset! But then again I don't know of any real alternative to Adobe CC except that I'm now using Sketch for most of my UI and vector work and secretly whish that one day it will make AI obsolete. But what about all my AI files? …
What are your thoughts on this? Should I just chill and pay and be happy that I now have access to 27 other Adobe applications and a cloud I never use?
How do you – fellow designers – deal with this? Do you try to move away from Adobe products or do you think I'm overreacting and that great software has it's price and that renting access to software is the future anyway?
