Hold your horses there, bub. Turns out the log-on snafu didn't necessarily prevent users from using their tools locally. Just how many were impacted is unclear, as monthly subscribers can continue to use apps for 30 days and annual members up to 99 days without having to log into the cloud to reverify the status of their subscriptions. For enterprises and SMEs, the cloud introduces centralized app-management and cross-tool workflows that may have seen more of an impact by this login problem.
If the impact was minimal, it's pretty clear the Creative "Cloud" is a bit of a cloud wash. If the impact was more severe -- I haven't seen or been able to score any interivews with Creative Cloud customers -- it's another example of beyond-customer-control cloud vulnerability. In my book, enterprise data centers are more likely to go down than cloud data centers. On the other hand, desktop apps are as reliable as the PCs they're installed on.
