Creative Cloud Connection is the missing link.
Adobe you have dropped the ball (although I truly hope only for a short while), and frankly I am astounded. Never in my over 20 years of using your products has there been a mistake as big as this one (in my opinion and only with the products I have been using). I'll even cut you some slack on the first two versions of CS.
You give us 20GB of space for files. Great. Ican can drag and drop files to the site. Awesome. I can create as many folders for organization as I want. Wonderful. But, I can’t drag and drop from CC to my desktop - when I do I only get a jpg image of the icon on my desktop. That’s a “drag”. In order to actually share a file with another party, I have to make your image public and email a link to that party. Annoying. This is only good for collaboration with others on one design at a time, but in the real world there are usually at least half a dozen projects happening at one time with tight deadlines. Comments can be added to aid in the progress of a project, but that’s about it so far. And, I cannot download more than one file at a time right now. So much for file sharing and enhancing work flow. At this point, I can’t even share your CC workspace with another person, like I can with Dropbox. Sigh.
Adobe you have been promising the Creative Cloud Connection – desktop access to Creative Cloud files – since May. I’m in despair. Why is it not available yet, Adobe, why? You have said that it's coming soon since May - it's August Adobe - what is going on?????????

I suspect it's regrettably more a case of over-promising and under-delivering.
They've prematurely set some of the expectations of the Cloud features too high with the marketing copy.
Now everyone is salivating at the mouth waiting (or demanding) for the features they've been promised to expect.
If they hadn't mentioned Cloud Connection in April but simply delivered it in Q3 or Q4, they would be heroes.
That's Project Management 101. Hopefully they learn from the lessons of the somewhat clunky launch of the Cloud in 2012.
It's a shame all of this Creative Cloud Connection fiasco. One could think that at least Adobe would know about Dropbox or Skydrive's desktop tools and at least try to emulate them. Now I have 25 Gb in Skydrive integrated in my day-to-day work, so for me CCC has become obsolete even before having been released. At least they have stop promising to release CCC in "just a few weeks".
