I took a little trip to Amazonia:

http://www.amazon.com/Adobe-65158237-Photoshop-CS6/dp/B007R0RKV8

... where CS6 presently retails for $626.77 (plus any applicable sales taxes). Let's assume that the retail price has been stable over the time period of calculations below (I bet that it was not less).

Took a little trip to this Wikipedia web-page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adobe_Photoshop_version_history

... to find the release dates of the following PS CS versions:

CS3 - Apr 16 2007

CS4 - Oct 15 2008

CS5 - Apr 30 2010

CS6 - May 7 2012

So, for good munchkins who eschew those keygens and cracks, the cost of owning the current PS CS over the last 7 years time has been around $34.82 per month(tax not included). Ouch ! ...

But wait, the benevolent Adobe Corporation has a surprise for you. The subscription rate is a mere $19.99 per month (with one-year contract), or $29.99 per month (and you can cancel at any time).

I recommend that you not "look a gift horse in the mouth", RM. Order today and save $ !!! ...

You missed a major detail....one does not pay full retail price each time...but rather, the upgrade price.  This point alone renders your entire post an Epic Fail
