One need not be online to edit and process with CC. The software for CC is on the computer.Whilst I too have an inherent dislike for the cloud model it's not so much down to the rental aspect. Though I'd prefer to make a reasonable one of payment.
My internet connection can get rather temperamental & I might want to process on the laptop while on holiday with no web access so I'd rather be able be confident of having the software on my PC whatever happens to my link to the internet.
I'd also rather decide for myself if & when to upgrade software. All too often I've had software 'upgrades' that give me nothing new, while changing the layout so I have to relearn the software's idiosyncrasies.
As for the cloud services themselves, they do work really nicely, and I have stopped carrying around hard drives to and from school. I wish that they gave us a bit more space than the measly 25gb (I asked for more, and oddly, they gave me more, but still only around 80gb). 1TB of cloud storage would be awesome.
But, it's really nice to have all my fonts, patterns, color schemes and assets wherever I go - automatically synced and available on my desktop. I know that for many of you this isn't a big deal necessarily, but for me it's a HUGE help.
