I suspect (hope) that licensing will always be an option. For full time users of a program, it is logical. The rental plan is more useful for the hobbyists and casual users of the program.

Time will tell. If they overstep on the money grab, then the alternatives will start to appear. I remember when WordStar and Lotus1-2-3 thought they were invincible in the marketplace. Then there was WordPerfect and DBase. A lot of companies have disappeared over time by not meeting the real needs of their users. Hopefully Adobe won't go that way.
