Adobe Creative Cloud holds creative works hostage: if you stop paying the monthly fee or if Adobe's servers go down, you can't edit your work. Once you buy into the Adobe ecosystem, you're stuck there and forced to pay rent.
There are many free open alternatives which give you full control over your work without locking you down:

Damm, i literally got banned from another mastodon instance for expressing the desire to follow content creators on #Gab. Didn't violate any rules and was completely reasonable about it. I merely expressed wanting to follow all sides of the political spectrum in one place. I know its a sensetive subject, but thats just rude.
@cj while I agree in principle I think it's murky territory to conflate what Tusky did vis-a-vis Gab with implementing a feature or not. If Tusky removed boosts for everyone the freedom of use is respected: anyone can use Tusky to do what Tusky is designed to do. If they removed boosts only for left-handed people then freedom of use is infringed because not everyone can use Tusky the same way.
That said, I use Tusky and I think Gab should be de-federated.

@frankstrater @DashEquals But #peertube could just use #IPFS under the hood, right? So that you could use IPFS to distribute your content. Every instance just "seeds" the video their users upload, like it does now, but just also exposes them over IPFS.
Instances can show videos that it doesn't host by IPFS-fetching them. They can also cache and serve them.
People could setup caching services (peers) on their laptops or even inside their peertube browser page.
OK. Some people keep rating the app one star because I don't block an instance.
Unfortunately, their lack of comprehension concerning the Fediverse (manipulated by some propaganda) make they think that the app is not safe to use.
You have every tools with the app to avoid interacting with people you don't want to see.
"Ever since the demise of Google+, many developers have expressed a desire to have a service that would provide a way to create and manage content in a format that would be more rich and easier to access than email messages sent to LKML. Today, we would like to introduce people.kernel.org, which is an ActivityPub-enabled federated platform powered by WriteFreely and hosted by very nice and accommodating folks at write.as."

The new #RaspberryPi 4 makes a very usable #Nextcloud server for home users. We'd recommend the 2GB or 4GB ram version, though.
