Thanks very much for this! What would you recommend I do in terms of an upgrade? Can I upgrade to CS6 for Mavericks or do I have to upgrade to CC? I figure I could still keep CS apps for when I don't have access to the Internet, but also use CC for when I need compatability.
If you are philosophically opposed to subscription software you can still purchase a perpetual license to CS6 (which is "feature complete" and will not be enhanced), but a cloud subscription gets you CS6 along with CC and CC 2014, and the other apps like Illustrator, Photoshop and Acrobat, all for the same monthly price.
Thanks for this. I will proceed to the CC solution.
