I can't seem to find the CS6 from CS5 upgrade for sale. Am I being forced down the cloud route already?
Sorry, I would ask this directly to Adobe, but they have no chat agents online right now.
The new version was already announced and there is no CS7 only CC. CC, short for "Creative Cloud", is an update to the current CS6 versions out there for perpetual and cloud licensing. So unfortunately with Adobe it's the entire suite of the Cloud or nothing. I am disappointed as you are because I knew what was inevitable with people buying the entire cloud and as a result programs like Fireworks will bite the dust because there is no way for Adobe now to accurately tell which programs people are buying since they just have all of them outside of them tracking program usage somehow ( http://blogs.adobe.com/fireworks/2013/05/the-future-of-adobe-fireworks .html ).
Although Adobe's website would have you believe that it's now the Cloud or nothing, DW CS6 is still available for sale as a perpetually licensed product.
There will be no CS7 though.
Thanks, unfortunately your link doesn't work for me. The error message is unhelpful.
There was a problem in the store. If you wish to complete your purchase immediately, please call (800) 585-0774 (U.S./Canada).
I'm in the UK, so would need to purchase through the UK store, which is where I was looking for the product.
Sorry about that. Link worked for me earlier.
Adobe has made it clear that CS6 is still available for sale after CC launches but they are making it very, very, very difficult to do so. Almost impossible in fact.
Well I've now done some more searching of the UK site and finally found it in tiny, tiny small print with a link that kept taking me back to Subscribe to CC. More perseverance and I've now eventually got a buy button for the actual product (although download only, no boxed version offered).
As you said, they are making it very, very, very difficult. Thanks for your input
