A Sermon on the evils of Apparently Cheap Adobe Software

Brothers and Sisters,

Gather round…

I am often asked if  a cheap price on Adobe software is a good deal.

While I can mount a convincing argument that Adobe software is good value, legitimate copies are  never cheap. Cheap Adobe downloads from third party sites will bring you a lot of unhappiness.

Warez or cracked software is a vector for malware into your system. The time you spend rebuilding your system will exceed the savings on the cheap software.

Most of the Google alerts I see for Captivate refer to this type of download.

I’ve never done it, but I’ve seen it done and 100% of the time, without fail, it has been a recipe for disaster.

Your IT department will send to a place of great and manifest unpleasantness.

Unemployed, shall be thy name.

Hear endeth the sermon.

Now, join me in hymn number 332, “May there be Reasonable Upgrade Pricing”
