I think there is a big reason there is no fanfare ... Either CC isn't selling as well as they had hoped, or it is selling so well, Adobe is attempting to entice even more folks int the fold
When something is selling well, most companies try to increase the price point... especially when a special discount with a clearly defined timeframe is involved.
So there is 99% chance that CC is not selling as well as they expected.
Since they were apparently not expecting it to sell very well short term anyway, odds are it is not selling well at all.
There is no reason to be particularly happy about this. Adobe is a key supplier of the photography world and we can only wish their continued success.
They have the option every day that passes by to revert their decision and come up with a boxed version of CS7 if they feel that CC is threatening their top line. Of course, the longer it takes, the higher the odds that some of us really settle with the alternative software providers we have been evaluating for months...
