Man I hate subscriptions.   If you hate subscriptions, which plan are you going with?  Regarding Adobe of course?

I sold all my adobe stuff a decade + back and haven't look back ever.
It took a short while for other companies to developed new softwares
that are perfectly replacing them and that I have been using in my tra-
de since.

Now, I own my software licences including updates unlimited in time.

Software is not a service it is a product which you purchase, not rent . I don't use Adobe cloud. I don't own office 365. I just bought office 2016 for cheap. As far as photogaphy, I go with On1 Photo Raw. It has everything. It is a raw editor. unlike lightroom has layers and layer blending modes like photoshop but is non destructive, has filters like photoshop (though not as many). It has HDR, photo stitching. They bought Genuine fractures for doing resizing. They have denoise AI which is similar to Topaz AI noise reduction. You can get it for $79 on sale. It is an end to end photo editing  solution. Lightroom needs photoshop to be an end to end solution. But if you are a graphic artist and need photoshop, I use Affinity photo for a Photoshop replacement(which I purchase for $39 on sale at Christmas 2 years ago . Unless of course you want the millionaires controlling your life like Klaus Schwab, who said at the World Economic Forum "By 2030 you’ll owe nothing and be happy about it!" Bill Gates wants this too, pretty soon you will not be able to turn on your computer unless you paid your monthly payment for your computers operation system (Window 10 or Mac OS). It is coming, don't buy into it.

Yeah I  use Adobe CC. It's cheap and it's the best photo editing software around. There's a reason why it's what professionals at high level are all using.

There is no doubt Adobe is the first, the best. It has been around the longest and has had a constant stream of money pumped into it. Professionals can write it off. Fortunately despite that the alternatives are getting much better with less money and less staff. Adobe is a monopoly and that is not good for the consumer. But now the competition raises the bar and the product improves and non pros don't have the lights shut off if they don't make their monthly payment

Possibly on given markets but in Europe I see other choices.

No longer the only choice, 
no longer the best… by a good margin.

I agree, there are now choices. I don't use PS/LR so you won't get an argument out of me.
