I was content with using lightroom 5... and then my desktop computer decides to commit suicide... thought it might have been auto erotic asphyxiation considering the materials on the hard drive... but I digress.
If yall come across any decent deals with LR6 as an add-on or on just the software alone... I'd be very interested.
I'm sure this goes without saying for most people, but I'm not interested in the Creative Cloud.
Also, when you buy the software... you can get a multi-use registration code... because I would want one for my laptop and for my desktop's successor.
There is no Lightroom 6, yet.
Their website does not seem to offer the option of downloading a "standalone" version anymore

Typo. Actually my desktop revived itself. Though it certainly does seem it is time to replace the machine. It is two years... and while I'd love to get more time out of it... it seems an update is required.
I know this is a month old and off topic, but in case you're still considering upgrading: I would wipe your harddrive (after backup of course) and reinstall a fresh copy of Windows and all your programs. I've been meaning to do it to my laptop for months now, and never got around to it. My hard drive crashed last weekend and gave me no choice. I did upgrade to a SSD, which I highly recommend, but other than that it's my 2.5 year old laptop that has been sluggish for awhile. Now it's lightning fast again. I used to do all the registry cleaner stuff and defrag, which helped, but only so much. I think all those fragments of files long deleted just build up after awhile.
Anyway, give it a shot. You've got nothing to lose, you'll have to transfer everything over if you get a new comp anyway. It took me a full evening of uploading stuff, but I feel like I basically got a new computer.
