Adobe: CS6 ships May 7, CS5.5 upgrade deal ends May 6
Adobe is taking pre-orders for Creative Suite family products for Tuesday, May 7 delivery. That’s the headline, but the real deal is you can still purchase Creative Suite 5.5 and get CS6 for free, which is one heck of a twofer.

• CS6 Standard Upgrade, from $275
• Creative Suite 6 Design and Web Premium, $1,899 (upgrade from $375)
As noted in the lead, Creative Suite 6 family products start shipping Tuesday, May 7. However, if you buy CS5.5 now, you will get CS6 free for free via Adobe Creative Suite Assurance:

Editor’s note: Are you liking the new branding? Though it certainly could grow on me, my first impression is confusion — pretty boxes that give little clue as to purpose. What’s your take?
