Time to switch to Corel and Photo Ninja. I guess Adobe thinks they are enough of a standard that stupid customers will be willing to "rent" the software. NOT.
Buy a Sony A65 and get Tamron 17-50 / 70-200 f2.8 lenses. You get excellent IQ, 24MP / excellent color depth / as well as image stabilization on every lens since it is in body. That means you can take a fast prime, open it all the way and shoot in dark environments.
