Oh, Adobe says it's going to be flexible with companies that restrict cloud service. I think that concern has come up here before with security conscious firms.

After seeing the pitch a month or so ago at the InDesign Users' Group, I'm a lot less skeptical f the subscription model. I honestly don't know how it will affect people like us though, in a multi-seat environment. We're pretty much hostage to whatever our clients want to do though, especially in places like mine where they haven't bothered to push a PDF submission over live file path.

"With Creative Cloud and Adobe Typekit®, you'll have access to over a thousand font families — all organized, searchable, and easy to add to your projects in seconds. You focus on finding the right font, and Typekit takes care of compatibility and licensing details."

I take this to mean that if you don't sign up, and don't have the font, your hosed. Why package a job when it's all out there in the cloud?
I really hope I'm wrong, but I just know the owners are gonna freak when they here we have to start paying $250 a month to keep the workstations going.
Our IT guy announce he was buying CS6 last week, I told him to wait until this Adobe maxi thing was done, but then we figured it would be CS7 and skip a year kind of thing, oh well, it's only money.

Interesting with the font idea, but is it only for web fonts?

http://help.typekit.com/customer/portal/articles/529506-getting-started-with-typekit-and-creative-cloud

Typekit is available standalone or as part of Adobe’s Creative Cloud service. As part of a paid Creative Cloud subscription, you’ll receive a Typekit Portfolio plan with access to our full library of web fonts. (The free Creative Cloud subscription includes a Typekit Free Plan, with a subset of the fonts available.)

If you are new to Typekit, first subscribe to Creative Cloud. (If you’ve previously purchased Creative Suite 3 or later, you’re eligible for a discount on your first year of Creative Cloud.) Then, sign in to Typekit with the same Adobe ID you used to subscribe to Creative Cloud.

Now you can begin using Typekit. Browse the library of fonts or learn how to add fonts to your site.

Note: if you are already using Typekit, you can link your new Creative Cloud membership to your Typekit account.

What we as an industry should do is tell Adobe to shove their "cloud" up their ass. If every print shop in the world did it, their software would be virtually worthless. At the very lest they should start the Partners Program back up, and offer print shops access to their print software at a substantial discount for a yearly fee. I do not need Flash, Dreamweaver or any of the Web applications, and I already have all the fonts I need, ditto on the storage and collaboration BS. I for one will stick with CS5.5, and ask for PDF's for CC files like we do for Quack files now.

I think a lot of people already did that, judging by the way the Adobe help forums were besieged by questions about CS2 apps once Adobe let go of the authorization on those apps and people started downloading like crazy. They even had to put up a special header for CS2 questions.

That's a sign of how many people aren't going on the Cloud.

Yeah, I believe those are just the web fonts. You can already do that with Googles vast library of web fonts for nothing.
