Adobe eyes move to software-as-a-service

Chizen claimed that the delay in services being delivered over the internet was partly down to broadband speeds: "The desktop is a powerful machine in which to run applications. But broadband, as quick as it gets, is still going to have some limitations in the short term." Which business model would you prefer for Adobe to take?
