Adobe Photoshop Drops XP Support, Woe to the Luddites
Adobe Photoshop Moves with the Times
As a follow up to our post last night about Google Apps dropping support for Windows XP, it appears that Adobe Photoshop will be following suit. Per Adobe’s photoshop blog, Photoshop CS6 will be the last version to support Windows XP. As we mentioned, Windows XP is more than a decade old. And with Windows 8 release just around the corner, it’s time to move on.
The exact date that Adobe will release a new version of Photoshop and stop supporting Windows XP was not announced. However, they also announced that all subsequent Photoshop feature updates specifically for Creative Cloud members will no longer support Windows XP. It appears moving on to a more current browser will allow for better performance and innovation of their project. Note that CS6 was never supported on Vista, so moving over to that operating system won’t help you. Adobe created a list of systems they do recommend for optimal performance of their products.
