No. This means you can no longer walk into a store, grab a box off the shelf, pay for it once, and use it until the end of time. Now, you have to go to the Adobe website, put in a credit card number, and pay $30 / month in order to use any/all of the Creative Cloud apps. Still need Windows/Mac OS X; these are not new apps, just a new way to pay for using them. ;)

IOW, instead of paying $500-odd upfront to "own" and use the app forever, you now pay $30 every month for the privilege of continuing to be able to use the apps on your computer.
