This article is inaccurate. Microsoft changed the Eula again at the beginning of March due to consumer/business demand.
I own CS 5. If I choose to move the software suite to a new machine all I have to do is deactivate it, then install and activate it on the new machine. I can do this easily from the help menu. Adobe products are as near perfect as any software can get They give you what you pay for. I am considering moving to the Cloud on the next upgrade cycle because I trust Adobe.
Microsoft, on the other hand, resorts to thuggery and intimidation in order to force customers in a direction. Changing the EULA for the express purpose of making Office unattractive is being hostile to their customers. They are basically saying if you don't move to SaaS we will make it hard on you.
Ninety percent of the people using Office could use Open Office as a substitute and hardly know any difference. The value you get from Microsoft is not worth the money in comparison. There are no viable substitutes for Adobe products. Most of us who use Adobe are willing pay premium for software then brag about it.
Microsoft should watch out, people have more choices these days.
Business will likely never adopt the cloud solution.
