I suppose it isn't a lot more expensive if you were in the habit of upgrading with every new edition. But many amateurs like myself would upgrade once every 5 years or so. For us, the CC is beyond our reach now.

I fit into this category, and am very disappointed with this move.

Thieves don't complain about prices, they just steal things. The folks complaining the loudest are so vocal because they feel the pain in their wallets.

Exactly!  Great way of stating what I've been thinking very succinctly.

One other point is that I want to be able to guarantee that I can open my own work at a later date, even if Adobe goes out of business.  How can the "cloud" model work in that scenario?  Suddenly all your Photoshop files are unusable, since the software can no longer phone home?  That would be an intolerable situation.
