A good question. Why bother with PP CS6 or wait for CS7?

I think that Adobes Creative Cloud business model is preposterous. Do you really want to continue giving a company, however great, a monthly sum for the rest of your working life?

And if you stop paying have absolutely nothing to show for it, no means of reviewing, ammending or updating your work?

( a bit like trying to leave your iTunes library to your kids when you die! )

From all accounts the software is great but the business model for the consumer is not, it's all slated in favour of the producer/ manufacturer.

With Final Cut Studio you paid a decent professional fee for the suite of software, received maintenance updates, and then if you chose paid for the next significant upgrade. With FCPX, I bought it 2 years ago for £200 and have received 8 upgrades since then. This seems like a great deal, OK so using the software ties me into using Apple computers, but I'd choose to use them anyway.
