    Downloading Final Cut Express from the Adobe Website?
    New Mac user here ....

    Am I overlooking something? Is there any major disadvantage from downloading Final Cut Express from the Adobe website?

    $50 there vs $200 in store?

    1. Adobe does not sell Final Cut Express.

    2. You cannot get Final Cut Express from the real Adobe web site.

    3. That is not the Adobe website. This is Adobe's website.

    4. That is some Russian or former soviet block country or China website selling pirated software. They have not paid a penny to Adobe, Apple or anyone else for the software they are selling.

    Read the fine print- some of these sites use to tell you right in their FAQ section that you could not register the software with the developer or get updates from the developer - everything has to be done through them. Now they've removed that part and only tell you that you can do that unless it says otherwise in the text file you get after you give them your money, which of course, that's what it'll say. Because if you go to register or update, the software will likely not work again.

    And yeah, that was me that removed the link from your post.

    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
