Get used to it, this is the way it is going. As I pointed out above this is the standard methodology for companies that produce software tools. The concept is good, the problem is the price. 
Regardless, I think we are going to see a lot more of this, the EDA tool companies (and many others) have already shown it to be a workable model.

In contrast to Adobe CS, I don't imagine hobbyists and self-employed professionals making up a large market for EDA tools. Businesses often prefer recurring expenses in cases where individuals would not.

As for pricing, Microsoft's is in many ways worse: what was once a $150 (street) "single-user/two-PC" Office license has now become a $150/year subscription or two $189 (MSRP = street, apparently) "single PC" licenses. At least Adobe has maintained pricing and licensing terms for non-Creative Cloud customers.

We use Office 2003 where I work and I use it at home. I'll be damned if I fall in Microsoft's renting trap.
