Adobe to cut off boxed sales of Creative Suite, Acrobat

Adobe to cut off boxed sales of Creative Suite, AcrobatAdobe has confirmed plans to halt boxed sales of its Creative Suite software, as well as Acrobat. "As Adobe continues to focus on delivering world-class innovation through Creative Cloud and digital fulfillment, we will be phasing out shrink-wrapped, boxed versions of Creative Suite and Acrobat products," an official statement reads. "Electronic downloads for Creative Suite and Acrobat products will continue to be available — as they are today — from both Adobe.com, as well as reseller and retail partners. We are in the process of notifying our channel partners and customers, as plans solidify in each region."

Rumors have claimed that May 1st is the official cutoff date, but Adobe has neither confirmed nor denied that. The elimination of boxed copies reflects an overall trend in the software industry, since broadband Internet has made it easy to download apps, even ones as large as those in the Creative Suite. Adobe has moreover been pushing its Creative Cloud service, which grants access to up-to-date CS apps at the cost of a regular subscription fee.
