Well, looks like if you want to keep up-to-date with Adobe apps, you're no longer able to purchase a perpetual license -- it's all subscription-based now ...

I won't deny that since I make my living using a good deal of this software, I'm more than a little ambivalent about having to pay a monthly fee in order to keep using it. Fortunately, I have the latest CS6, which although not EOL'd, apparently won't be updated any further. We'll see how long I can hold out ;-)

Still, a sad day -- the march towards renting apps moves apace =P
