    I have subscribed, and I am very happy to be able to expand beyond photoshop, which I have used since version CS, and to get back into Illustrator and all of the other Adobe offerings, which I have been neglecting. I think the Creative Cloud is a spectacular idea, and wish you well with it.

    While I am eventually going to be looking forward to using CS6, I can’t believe that Adobe seriously suggests upgrading as a security fix for a critical bug:

    I wish, more than anything that Adobe would slow the upgrade process so they can actually eliminate bugs in their software. There are so many in both photoshop and illustrator that have existed for a long while and never been fixed.

    When you’re software updated and bugfixed then I’ll happily pay for regular upgrades!

      We are in the process of resolving the vulnerabilities addressed in these Security Bulletins in Adobe Illustrator CS5.x, Adobe Photoshop CS5.x (12.x) and Adobe Flash Professional CS5.x, and will update the respective Security Bulletins once the patches are available.
