online osYep.  Free.

Of course, there is a catch.  This Photoshop will be ad-supported and run online.  The online version will not require anything to run it other than browser and (fairly fast) broadband connection.  Reports indicate that online Photoshop won’t offer all the options of the full version but will be enough to keep many people happy.

WHY?  Good question.  The days of selling a cardboard box with a CD inside are numbered.  Microsoft knows it because Google is breathing down their neck with products like online word processing and spreadsheet apps.  And online OS’s are already in beta and beyond.

Imagine using online apps and storing your stuff either online or on a flash drive.  You can use any computer to work or play without worrying about access to the software that you need.

Imagine paying a monthly fee to access the software. Can everything be free forever?
