Wow.

I just read the link you handily provided regarding the Camera Raw policy change.

I'm a bit confused by it… so if I purchase a new camera in the future my version of CS6 will likely support the RAW file, but not handle some of the editing features? Am I reading that correctly?

Yes. That's right. Camera Raw for CS6 will continue to add new cameras for perpetual license users. Only Camera Raw for CC will get new "features."

Sarbanes Oxley's accounting rules prevents Adobe from adding new features for "free" to CS6 users. It's screwed up, but I did the research on that and Adobe's not blowing sunshine on that one. Thank your congressman.

I'm not an expert, but I'm wondering if this has less to do with SOX and more to do with the way Adobe has been accounting for revenue with perpetual license products.

When I installed iOS 7 to my iPhone (upgrading from 6) I didn't pay any fee. Nor have I paid any fees for updating to Maverick on my laptop which includes new features over Mountain Lion (with the newer OS offering Pages and Numbers for free, which sounds like new features).

I suspect that at the heart of this is a difference in the way Adobe and Apple (and I'm picking on Apple since I use their products as well) account for revenue with perhaps Apple deferring some of it to future periods with the understanding it will account for improvements to products/services already sold.

I further suspect Adobe's route has more to do with trying to get as many customers off their perpetual license products (like my CS 6 and Lr 5) and into CC as they anticipate it will be more profitable for them. No more customers sitting on a release for years before upgrading. No more (hopefully) pirating of software. And a potentially more reliable revenue stream.

But I'm just guessing here.
