what i hate is the antivirus upgrades. they come out witha new one everyear. leaving it easier to get a virus not having the upgraded version.
they upgrade antivirus software because there is constantly new viruses/threats being created. It's not some conspiracy. The same with other
software. They improve it all the time.
things like photoshop and flash are expensive because they take a long time to create and program. do you have any idea how long and hard programmers
work to write code for these software packages? They work very long hours, for long periods of time.
Sure, on the surface for what you may use photoshop or flash for it doesnt seem worth the money. But really have you seen everything those programs
can do? I'm willing to bet not. You could really make your own cartoon or movie by yourself with these programs, and have it look the same as a
disney/pixar film if you really put yourself into it. That's how powerful alot of these programs are.
So, really, the cost isnt the factor here, it's how much it is worth to you and what you are going to use it for. There are plenty of different
software suites out there that may not cost as much, as well.
