Have some questions regarding follow up on my installation of PS CS6. First thing to say is that I hardly ever use PS. I use LR4.4 99.9% of the time, but occasionally have gone to CS3 for small adjustments even though I don't really know how to use it. Planning to learn now that I have 6. I'm running 10.6.8. (Disappointed that I can't upgrade to LR5 so will, at least, need to learn content aware, which was my main reason to go to PS6 anyway.)

So, the questions:
1. I have CS6 standard upgraded from CS3 extended. Any reason to keep CS3 around for low-level, general photography editing to take advantage of its "extended" qualities?
2. Other Adobe software that seems to have tagged along with other Adobe programs:
a} Adobe Stock Photos CS3? Nothing even opens when I click on it - can it go?
b) Device central CS3 - assuming it can go if CS3 goes but I don't see a "Device central" for CS6. Don't really know what it is, anyway.
c) Extension Manager CS4, CS5.5, and CS6. Can't imagine where the CS4 came from. CS5.5 probably came along with In Design 5.5, which is still in use, so probably keep that? Assume keep CS6.
d) Bridge 5.1 and 6. Looks like they are both picking up the same things. I don't use it since I'm using LR. Figuring get rid of 5.1 and keep 6 just because.
e} Interestingly, no ACR came tagging along with PS CS6. Since anything I would send to PS is going to go through LR4 I don't see a real reason to have it. I think the new fun stuff on LR5 isn't going into the new ACR anyway and, I figure I wouldn't be able to run it on 10.6, it doesn't seem like I really need it.
