Adobe = schmucks

Well Adobe, you are complete bastards. I got Adobe CS5 Master Collection, student edition, in 2010. There is a CS6 which came out last year, and now there is ... *drumroll*... "Creative Cloud". Where you charge me on a monthly basis, forever. Yes, I can see how that would benefit me NOT IN THE SLIGHTEST. So I Google to try to find a way to upgrade to CS6. EVERY SINGLE LINK now just redirects to the "Creative Cloud" page. So I ring the company I originally bought the software from. Yes, I can upgrade CS5 -> CS6 - but not "student", I would need to just buy a brand new version of "CS6 student" outright. FOR ALMOST $600. There is not even remotely $600 worth of stuff in CS6 that makes it worth "upgrading" to it. And WTF happens with "cloud" software when you need to work and your internet connection goes down? Huh? Huh?? So, CS5 it will remain.

HOW ABOUT GIVING CUSTOMERS WHAT THEY WANT, YOU COMPLETE TOSSERS??

I'll say it again - this is why people pirate.
/rant off :)
