The promise: they will support it through one major OS upgrade. For those on Macs that happens ~every year. Apple is a bit more aggressive about OS updates than Microsoft. 10.9 is just about to be released. Will that be it? With this promise just another year from this summer and it could be broken. Think about it. It is to Apple's advantage to break CS6 just as they broke Flash on mobile. More FCPX sales, and more Mac sales. Slim comfort.
