Many of us upgraded to CS6 because we were told that we wouldn't be able to upgrade from several versions back anymore.
In fact, we were told by Adobe that we would only be able to upgrade from 1 or 2 versions back.
That was bad enough, but then it looked like only 1 version back.
Now it looks like no versions back!
With CS6, we will never be able to upgrade to anything and own the software again.
You tricked us into buying CS6 last year.
We're not stupid, eventually CS6 will become obsolete.
Now we have no path forward unless we subscribe to your permanent rental financial model.
You LIED, LIED, LIED, LIED, LIED, LIED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How on earth do you expect to keep customers when you treat them like this?
Bring on the competitors!
What Adobe fails to understand is that the cloud is where most of us will connect to find clever work arounds. Aperture, On one and nik softwares are ways that some of us will able to do most of what we do in Photoshop. So bring on our real creative cloud! Good Luck to Adobe. Lets see if you can compete with the masses!
They also stated the "new" features being released on the Cloud would be released to all users in the next full release. However now there is no next release for perpetual license holders other than the cloud going forward. This is blatant misinformation as well, information they no doubt knew but withheld to ensure further sales of CS6 in the meantime. Very shady practices on Adobe's part, many efforts seem to be made to boost sales of CS6 even when they knew what was happening behind the scenes with their decisions that are now detrimental to many customers going forward.
Yeah, you CS6 users got the shortest end of the stick.
A class-action lawsuit would be horrible. Think of it. Adobe gets sued for millions, maybe even billions. Where do you think they're gonna make up that loss? Exactly. By passing on the expense to the customer.
I can see it now, Adobe "apologizes" for misunderstanding. Offers "Adobe Creative Cloud Web Premium Bundle for $5500USD".

And that price would still no doubt be one of Adobe's infamous temporary intro discount price offers also.
