Now that Alan has stopped working on Armory, what wallet do you use for offline storage?

Armory. What did you switch to and why? (by your post I'm assuming you switched). BTW, his name is Alan Reiner (etotheipi), not Adam :)

No, i did not switch yet and in fact I'm inclined to stay - I think goatpig has done a pretty good job so far.

You're right, I misstyped Alan's name - I edited the post and corrected it.

Sorry, your post made it seem that changing from Armory was the obvious option :D I don't think most would switch even of development came to a halt, Armory would still be well equipped for quite some time. I'm wondering if anyone switched and why...

I use Electrum as an offline wallet.

Instructions:

One nice feature is that you can make an online watch-only wallet without risking your private keys.

Armory allows watch-only wallets too.

I installed Armory 0.94.1 and it works very well. Its database is now under 150MB, a huge improvement if you ask me!
