OK I've drunk the Koolaid and adopted the cloud model (for me it make sense as I use a number of their products), but I have to wonder what has prompted this offer? I the cloud perhaps not been quite the success Adobe are suggesting? I'm fairly sure they're not doing this out of the kindness of their hearts!
BTW I have found the cloud has been great in terms of usability (whatever you think of the pricing). Everything bang up to date, easy to add extra apps as you need them. Made moving to a new PC
very easy as well. I have noticed no issues any sort of licence verification. No different to using locally installed products.
