Yes users will move photos to the cloud ( or rather most people that used picasa have already moved to photos), and yes this is an attempt to remove the importance of local systems to online services.

My (quite old) parents haven't and won't. They use Picasa (the desktop application) only to organize and tag their photo collection, but they don't even have a google (or picasa) account and don't intend to. Backup is on two USB hard drives.

Hopefully, the desktop app will keep working "as is" for many years down the Windows versions line. Otherwise I'd be interested to hear from whoever tested other Windows applications doing a good-enough job at this (opensource, if possible, but not limited to)
