I've no comment on the enterprise issues, but I've been a designer long enough to remember when Adobe gave away InDesign for free with a new Mac tower in its early days, trying to break apart Quark XPress's dominance. Maybe the first CS?As much as I love it, the incredibly low price for Serif products is the only thing that worries me. It will (and has) help them break into the market. It also has the potential to pick up business from freelancers and small operations that cannot justify Adobe's subscription price.
That's when I got my first InDesign version. I didn't play with it much then, as my main textbook publishing client was firmly entrenched with QXP. They are now equally entrenched with InDesign CC.
I've been toying with dumping the whole suite in favor of a single-app subscription for just InDesign and using Affinity's software for my Illustrator/Photoshop needs to save costs; I'm just a solo designer. Acrobat is the kicker though. I need that, too. Any ideas from the group? Acrobat has some press refinements (CMYK > grayscale, etc.) that aren't replaced with a run of the mill PDF program.
