It will? What does being available through the cloud mean? Are you saying it will be web based only.

No, this time cloud neans SAS (software as service) model (please note, that it is not my concept to name Adobe's service the cloud).

Ah gotcha, so the whole thread title is basically fantasy based upon 'what if's' and stirring up an already upset userbase.

You are aware Adobe said they have no plans to do this?

Who cares.  The minute Adobe's corporate profits dive, they will consider moving LR to the cloud.  Especially if their CC efforts survive.

Would you buy a Nikon DSLR knowing that they are getting out of the camera business...

Just as valid a question....

Nope, not valid at all.  A Nikon camera can last far longer than software.   A Nikon camera does not need updating if you change OS on your computer.   A Nikon camera can be repaired if broken.  A Nikon camera can be easily sold to another person.

Nikon will not shut off your camera if you stop paying them.

Not even close to a valid comparison.
