Within 15 days of the announcement regarding the end of Net neutrality, I received a letter from my internet provider. The internet provider was letting me know the monthly fee for internet service now included a limit on the monthly amount of data (uploads and downloads). If more data was used, an additional fee would apply for each block of data. The letter also stated that I was nearly the limit and to expect this additional charge should I go over. This puts a big black eye on cloud-based computing, such as Adobe, where uploads/downloads for daily work and regular updates can be quite significant for active creatives. Is there a static desktop version available?

Not really.

The Adobe Cloud apps are not Cloud based. The so-called Cloud versions of Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator all install and run from your local hard drive, just the same as they always have done.

The "Cloud" part of the name of the apps is Adobe marketing speak for the software licensing being administered on Adobe servers rather than from your local hard drive by you entering a serial number.

Other than occasional updates and periodic license checks, there is no internet traffic between your Cloud apps and the Adobe servers. The license checks can be done at 3-4 month intervals so that internet traffic is minimal. You could even disconnect your computer from the internet entirely and use Adobe Cloud apps for up to 4 months before a license check is mandatory.

So, unless you choose to store your work online (optional), you are not chewing up your monthly internet allowance by using your Adobe Cloud apps.

It may pay for you to check your internet traffic logs (they're on your ISP's server) to see where your monthly allowance is being used up. If you don't know how, perhaps ask your internet service provider to assist you to understand them. Could be email attachments, social media, media streaming or a host of other internet activity.

If Adobe isn't cloud based- then why, when I sign into Adobe do I see what documents my partner had open - when he doesn't even save to the cloud?! Sometime IS reporting out besides whether or not we have legit licenses.

My streaming TV alone would make that a deal breaker.   Find a better ISP .

As for the CC desktop apps, its what John said.   Being offline does not stop the software from working.
