I think Adobe has done a poor job in the presentation of a major shift in their distribution of the photography line of products. For a company that produces a generally excellent set of products, your demeaning attitude for the 'hobbyist' failed to respect those same customers. SHAME ON YOU. I will not spend the same amount of money on Adobe products as I have in the past since I don't think you CARE about the hobbyist nor acknowledge how they have DRIVEN the demand.

And then the Japanese will build a Canon Rebel equivalent so that Soccer Moms and Hockey Dads can photograph their little superstars at play with Giga-Gazillion-byte size files that they will try to email to relatives instead of a 45 kilobyte size photo file.That is why I need therapy and a bottle of Jack Daniels... :o)
I suspect you might have needed therapy prior to this announcement . :)
