The people who want to rent should have that awesome option.
The people that want to own should have that option as well (without being treated second class by the way).
The good news is we will probably get to have our owner option - the bad news is just not with Adobe.
I'm going to hate to switch, but I like owning, so I'm switching as soon as I have a good alternative to AE. Staying with CS6 till then.
Some times things like this end up being for the better. I would have never explored alternatives to Adobe until now. Now that I'm looking in to new options I might find something awesome.
