    MS are doing it to make more money.

    That money has to come from the users.

    "The move to subscriptions just drives a bigger and bigger and bigger recurring revenue stream," said Mark Garrett, Adobe's CFO, during the presentation to analysts.

    Except that after two years, once you stop paying, you no longer have the software available for use.....unlike purchasing it straight up.

    You need to give more thought to equating subscription and wholesale pricing.

    A bit like buying on Hire Purchase - except at least you get to keep the thing after you have eventually paid several times the straight purchase price.

    There are a few exceptions it may work for. For the vast majority, it is a mug's game.

    Adobe and MS are not doing it to make less money.
