Alternative Energy Photography: Just some idle thought here. So CS6, can I use it on both home workstation and on my laptop?

I currently have Windows 8 64 Bit on workstation, Windows 7 64 Bit on laptop (but soon to go to Windows 8 64 bit), and am planning to purchase a MacBook Pro whenever the new ones come out. It would be ideal if I could run it on up to 3 machines.

What is the maximum number of computers I can run CS6 on?

No, not CC. Here's my thinking: If I buy CS, it will be the first and last Adobe package I buy. Windows 8 will probably be in service for a few years. I could use CS for 4 or 5 years until alternatives show up, so even $1800 to $2400 would be justifiable, because I would still have the software and no monthly alimony payments to Adobe.

I'll do just about anything to avoid alimony.

I find it very interesting that there is a cracked CC version on Piratebay. There are two main reasons that I see for Adobe going for this model. 1) To eliminate the threat of cracked versions due to enforced registration checking. 2) To make more money.
Reason 1 is a non-starter, as its already been cracked.
Reason 2 is a terrible thing, and this is then the thin edge of the wedge.
If it is to offer 20GB storage space - there are other services offering space - and they ought to compete on the same level. For someone using minimal or no storage space on the cloud - it is a travesty to pay this premium!

mpgxsvcd: I like the 1080p @ 30 FPS option and the ability to control the Flash output more accurately.

I'm a bit disappointed they still haven't implemented panorama stitch. This is a feature that nearly all cheap compact cameras are coming up with, and certainly can't be all that difficult to implement.

pjsalty: What is the function of the projector? To project images onto a wall or screen?

Is anyone really going to blow a bunch of cash on accessories for a camera with a 1" sensor? I'll be very interested to hear what the iq is before I leave my m4/3 cameras.

Oooh, ooh! I've found something positive!
With an almost 3x crop factor, if that be a 1:1 lens, then the macros are going to provide insane close ups!
