I am always surprised that the AE community didn't split immediately after eliminating the CS series. I suspect it will take some time until more users will see the benefit of actually owning the software.
Especially when more and more users can not keep up the pass. Even worse, renting CC to see your own old projects, means that you don't own your projects or backups! CC being a ransomware taking hostage of your projects.
I guess and hope that the CS community will grow automatically and develop its own resources. This means that Adobe will be cannabalized by its own legacy, forcing them to create beter alternatives.
