There is no time limit to join photoshop cloud at $ 9.99 per month, hence no immediacy.

There is no time limit to upgrade to Photoshop CS6, so no immediacy there either.

Pretty soon, we will know whether Adobe marketing plan is a success or failure.

Been using it for the last 8-12 months or so, no complaints. All the moaning on the net about CS cloud is really getting old.

I'm more worried about google discontinuing support for Nik in photoshop and coming out with a google apps only version of photoshop than I am against anything Adobe is doing. You don't really hear about people who are using CS cloud complain because we are happy with the service.

Overpriced so not interested in it.  Good bye Adobe.

It's hilarious that the reason why Adobe is forcing people to rent their software instead of buy it is because Adobe simply cannot innovate anymore.  Just listen to the number of people who say CS6 offers them nothing and the proposed CC version is so light on new features, that it is not worth upgrading to.

Meanwhile Adobe claims CC will allow them to improve the software more often, rather than by a 2 year schedule.

Something does not compute!  What are these great, mythical Adobe innovations that have been missing the past many years?

As long as you KEEP using it (and paying for it), no problem. The problem only appears when you stop paying for it - software is then GONE, GONE, GONE.

Yes I have bought into Adobe PS CC. Perhaps there will be more people joining after tomorrow when Adobe actually launches Photoshop CC with its improved features.

Personally I dont think subscription is going to make an ounce of difference to the amount of piracy of their product. I suspect that a piracy version of Photoshop CC will be available within two weeks. This should keep the majority of users - who like the product but dont like paying for it - happy.

Have had it for ages.

I got it with a student discount at £15pcm for the entire creative suite, which would have cost a stupid amount to buy individually.

By the time the subscriptions have added up to the total cost it will be well over 5 years from now, by which point I'll probably want to change/upgrade anyway. This way I save money and get all the upgrades along the way.

N.B. I still use my own proper copy of lightroom because whereas if I suddenly loose photoshop etc theres no real problem, I'd rather not suddenly loose lightroom.

I have and I like your pictorial representation, shows that it's a lot drier in the cloud than on the ground.

...and I'm not going to.  I'll use CS4 for 1) as long as it has features I need or 2) I upgrade my workstation and CS4 no longer works or I can't re-enable it.  Once either of these occurs, I'll find an alternative.  In the meantime, however, I use LR for 95% of my conversions.
