Adobe offers a nice educator/student discount, which I used. I pay 
annually with the discount, and consider it very reasonable since I use 
it in business. I, too, am like Emily and don't like to update 
frequently and just 20 less things to think about :)

I have Sierra OS on my desk, and the High Sierra on the laptop... I 
wanted to wait to let them get the kinks out of High Sierra before I 
switched on my desktop.  But things are working fine.

Best cheer,
