Let's face it, Adobe will most likely stick with CC. Though they may modify the program a bit.
Here is my idea for a more photographer friendly program. Perhaps they will see and use a few ideas.
1. If you are current CS6 user, you can subscribe to CC at a reasonable charge ($10/month) and stop the monthly fee and continue to use the latest version. If you want to get back on this program, you need to pay a percent of the monthly fees you skipped (if < 6 months 100% of this monthly fees, else 60-80%).
2. If you are user of older version of CS6, your monthly fee would be higher (perhaps $15/month with 1-2 year minimum) or you could buy up to the current version.
3. Anyone else, pay $700 and enter program 1 or pay $20/month and have access only when you subscribe.
This protects current CS6 and older version users but give adobe the income stream they need.
Besides if I only need PS for 12 months, I can rent it for $240 versus buying it for $700. Good deal for those who need PS for a short period.
