since I already own LR5, if I get this subscription...I should be able to keep LR5 on my laptop, uninstall it from my home desktop (thereby giving me the option to install on a second computer), and using the CC subscription to reinstall LR5 on my home desktop.

Might need to use a different Adobe account; I'd get a rep on the line and see if it'll just up your activation count.

ok, I know with my copy of LightRoom 5, I can install it on 2 computers. What is the restrictions on the subscription plan? I have a home desktop, laptop, and work desktop. I'm wondering whether I would be able to install on all 3, so long as I only have it actively running on 1 system at a time.

I'm using it on three computers at the moment. The first two will work fine, but when you open it on a thrid and try to sign in, it will tell you to sign out of the other two first. You can sign the other computers out right there from the third computer. When you go back to the other computers you will just have to log in again and sign the others computers out. Not too much of a hassle really.

I'm using the free version of SkyDrive (7GB) to store my lightroom catalog. It keeps a local copy on each machine, so any changes I make get uploaded to skydrive, and the next system I power on and fire up Lightroom will also have the latest copy of the catalog.

I'm with you as well.
I will keep LR5 and CS6 with the perpetual license over getting a subscription. I will keep them as long as possible and may look for a replacement work flow. Paying continually for a product that may or may not provide any additional benefit so they can have a continuous income stream.

Wonder you a customer would think if they were charge a monthly fee for the ability to view their images?

Same boat here. I want to know that if times get hard and things get tight, I'm still able to do with my photo's and software what I can do now. I'm happy to choose to upgrade if the new features are worth while, and I have the cash to afford, but I don't like being committed at the mercy of anyone...

I'd rather pay $120 up front for the whole year than pay $10/monthly. Picky, I know. I just hate paying monthly bills. Get the sting over with and take my money!

Ah, but you're not paying $120 up front for a year. You're paying $120 up front for however long you still want to use the SW It may be 1, 2 years or more, continuing forever. The subscription is $120 each year and when you stop paying the SW stops working.

It's $120 for this year. It could go up the next year. But either way, my point is I'd rather pay an annual fee than a monthly fee (especially since the $10/month deal right now requires an annual commitment).

I'll keep using CS5 as long as possible

Signed up for this tonight even though I have CS6 and LR5. I see that I need to DL PS CC but do I also need DL LR again?

I downloaded LR5 and PS CC. I only have LR5, and didn't have PhotoShop. If they raise the prices and I cancel, I'll still have my copy of LR5. I'll just chalk up the $10/month as a rental fee.

You don't have to chalk it up as a rental fee. That's exactly what it is.

And I am fine with that. If in a year's time I don't like the price increase (if any), then I'll cancel and be no worse off than I am now.

I signed up for PSCC for 9.99 per month for the first year, then 20 per month thereafter, then later was told by Adobe that they were throwing in LR5 and keeping the charge at 9.99 permanently going forward. Ten bucks a month for LR and PSCC is too good to pass up, so I bit. I have needed Adobe's support, and they have been very good and fast. I do not regret this at all.

It's $120 per year. Many people pay that monthly for their smartphones. Yet no one complains about that. ;)
