I needed to make a visual document today. From school, I already had the license key and a copy of Adobe Creative Studio 6 Premium. The old machine would never have been able to run this taxing of a program. Most software has loaded ok onto my OS, Microsoft Server 2012 R, but some like Office won't install because of user licenses. I have needed to use a VM for Office; very annoying.
To my surprise, Adobe loaded great! I used it to make a block diagram for my IoT toilet. It took a minute to remember how to use it. But once I got going, ;). Having dual monitors for illustrator and photoshop together is pure joy.
