    All these updates will still go on CS6 Extended right?

    [No—only camera compatibility changes & bug fixes go into CS6. The new functionality shows up only in CC. –J.]

    Shucks, John, you know that is not an intuitive move. Functionality, like in human beings, stays with the soul of the body. Removing it only weakens the whole. By strenghening the individual parts of the body does not make the entire body stronger, it may even weaken it.The same thinking applies to CS. (that’s the philosopher in me)

    [I hear you, Alex. Of course, nothing whatsoever has been diminished in CS6. In fact, unlike in the past, the older release continues to get compatibility updates & bug fixes. (In the past if a new camera came out, you either needed to upgrade PS or use the DNG Converter to translate your files.) The diminution is strictly a matter of perception, in the same way that my iPhone 5 suddenly feels second-rate. –J.]

    Is that like having all the controls for SIRI but not having her speak. Like having the vocal chords but not the air to move them? You are right about improvements but new features in an existing UI belong to it. I held off on the first use on CC after I downloaded it and it wanted to push me to use it when I wanted to use CS6. So I let it expire without opening it. I am still not sold- sorry but my heart rules.
