Apparently still in development, but read this for some independent comments & info

Personally, would have MANY questions, as I use only InDesign & Dreamweaver - not the whole suite.
- And DW only a scattered few times in the year for site updates. This would be a huge development for users and will generate lots of discussions, when final implementation details are publicized. Because the Creative Suite has become "industry standard" so broadly, it's a very important issue.

Hi Mary Jo:

I for one do not want any part of renting my software. I do not know what I will do if Adobe forces all of us to using their CLOUD Model. I want no part of it.

I do not use half of the Creative Suite Products that are included in the CS5 Suite that I have. I sure do not need ALL of their products so I can use even less of them.

I guess we will need to wait and see what happens next.

I'm with Brian. I use InDesign a half-dozen times a year, and that's it for the Suite. I no longer use Photoshop, as Elements does everything I need.

Adobe lets you rent *now*, so that part's not new. Hopefully, buying will still be an affordable option. I'm not interested in renting either.

I agree with everyone 100%. No "renting" and dependence on cloud for essential applications - especially that have cost many hundreds of dollars over the years.

We'll wait & see if they "hear" the uproar. If it happened, I'd use what I have, stave off macos upgrades to keep them working. I work with a commercial printer 2 or 3 times a year. They love InDesign, but it will be interesting to see what the corporate level users will do if the "rent an app" becomes Adobe's standard.

Does anyone know... can you still purchase CS6 licenses if you are an existing owner?

You don't have to be an existing owner. You can still buy CS 6. After I killed off my sub I went back and bought the upgrade (I already had 5.5) figuring as it was the end of the line I wanted to have it last as long as possible.
