Lastly: Sherman, set the Wayback Machine for exactly five years ago. When Adobe was touting the new CS as the most important box of software you’d see for the next five years.

If the cloud people have their way, in five years, there won’t be any software on my computer.
See ya, kids. I’m off to collect my bailout bonus: a bowl of Ramen.
