Simon Garrett: Taking Adobe UK prices, the Photoshop-only CC subscription is 50% more than the price of the upgrade, amortised over 18 months. Compared to the previous situation where one could upgrade every 3 releases it represents a 550% price hike.

Add to that the uncertainty of future pricing: I can guarantee I can keep using my Photoshop CS5. I can't guarantee the price of CC.

Worse: the upgrade price to CS6 had now disappeared, and can't be found.

I really can't trust Adobe over anything now.

Bet they haven't increased their development staff by 50%. Upgrading every year simply means you don't get so many new features. I think it's fair to continue to compare to an 18 month cycle.

Your first point: I can't guarantee future upgrade prices, but I don't have to upgrade. I can simply continue using CS5. That way I don't have to pay anything more.

I've not come across "libtards" before; I assume it's a derogatory term. So those from the opposite political extreme in the US would be "Tea-tards"?
