Crossgrading Adobe software

Filed under: business development, cool — michaelangela @ 5:17 am

Crossgrades are possible within limits:

Changing Platforms for Adobe Photoshop and Creative Suite – Windows and Mac Cross-Grade

A. Yes, Adobe will allow you to perform a cross-grade, or cross-platform upgrade, of your Adobe product, assuming it meets the upgrade qualifications and provided you send them a signed Letter of Software Destruction. The Letter of Destruction states that you agree to delete all copies of the product you are exchanging and also that you will not “sell, transfer, give away, donate, or otherwise distribute the exchanged Adobe product or copies to anyone else.”

John Nack on Adobe: CS3: Switching platforms, free upgrades

Q. Can I switch my product from Windows to Mac or vice-versa?
A. Yes.
Just call Adobe Customer Service (800-833-6687 in the US; 020 7365 0733 in the UK; more country-by-country numbers here) for assistance. The process, as I understand it, involves signing an agreement stating that you’ve destroyed the product on one platform, and in return Adobe will send you the product for the other platform. According to the service folks, there may be a cost involved; verification of product is required; and restrictions apply.

So that is good to know. Will we move to a Mac completely in the future? Hopefully! But for now we’ll stick with Windows apps. For now….
