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.
The more I think about this, the more outrageous and potentially illegal it seems.
They knew what they were doing.
This must be grounds for a class-action lawsuit.
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.
Adobe Lied when I bought in at CS2 or 1 i forget they said we are not going anywhere you can upgrade for life. Adobe is a greedy bully!
