I recently upgraded from CS3 to CS5 for just under $1000. Overall, I am not impressed and get the distinct impression that Adobe is pushing through these new versions purely as a cash grab. While there are some improvements in AI, PS and InDesign the newer versions of Flash and Dreamweaver seem to have gone backwards. The interface and tools are more cumbersome and default actions are just simply annoying. I have reverted to CS3 for these 2 programs. Summary... the price is exorbitant compared to what you actually get.
