Adobe Creative Cloud: No Fair Warning Given for Upgrades

See Adobe Creative Cloud: Date of Birth Mandatory, Lopsided Legal Agreement and Adobe Clouds Software Choice (Adobe Creative Cloud Only Going Forward).

I use only two Adobe apps: Photoshop CS6 and DreamWeaver CS 5.5. And I use them daily and heavily.

So today I went to upgrade CS 5.5 to CS6 (not the Cloud version), because Adobe has said these current non-Cloud versions will be supported through the next OS X version.

The thing is, Adobe gave no warning and just flipped the switch overnight: one cannot buy a CS 5.5 to CS 6 upgrade any more. No warning, no “in 3 months this option will be removed...”. This just feels like dirty rotten trick. Mistakes like this don’t happen; it is a deliberate decision made in advance. And Adobe wants customers to sign up for some service that Adobe can lock you out of for no reason at all or discontinue at any time?

UPDATE: It turns out that it remains possible to upgrade, but the option is buried in an obscure place. One wonders why Adobe has to generate this confusion at all.

No option to upgrade CS5.5 to CS6
