Wow, Adobe. Just... Wow. Photoshop 1.0 was released in 1990, almost 20 years ago, and you jokers still can't write a decent updater. The mind boggles.

Oh but they say they are working on one, or rather, one is in the pipeline. Apparently, it's the biggest complaint from Adobe users. And it only took them this long to realize there was an issue and work towards addressing it. I stress work because so far nothing has emerge, just paper prototyping it seems. Yeah, for an update system. I love how they play up how hard everything is. Talk to John Nack about bringing Ps into 64bit... He'll rattle off all the things that need to be done. And here I thought Adobe was a billion dollar operation, not some mom and pop shop... Oh yeah, they must be busy collecting children's tears and unicorn horns...

Adobe has gone the way of Windows, in that, it only holds a vast market share because there is simply nothing to compete with it (Obviously with Apple's success, that's changing). I always hope that one day I will wake up and see that Apple has released iDesign (or equivalent). I would drop Adobe in a heartbeat.

Not only have they done nothing but add a handful of new features and apply a thin coat of paint to Ps every new iteration, they don't even pump out service builds. My CS4 doesn't respect Mac OS X's native font settings, where CS3 did. I find it hard to believe no one has reported this problem or I am the only one to suffer it...

They are by far my most hated/most used product on my Mac.

And let's not forget the Universal debacle, the SL/CS3 dilemma, as well as their lacklustre bi-yearly update system, and lastly, their iron-fist grip on the internet with flash.

These guys are complete upstarts that bilk customers without improving their software. There releases seem to focus on "just getting by" and marketing, making you believe you are getting some kind of value in each major release. They have spread so thin that they couldn't pump out one decent product if it was handed to them with a bow wrapped around it.

I'm sorry if this is overly negative, but they ran Ps into the ground long ago. I stuck with them through the PPC version of CS2, then CS3 came and it added Universal support, but not much else, CS4 was a sleeper that again didn't fix many ridiculous UI elements that remained untouched for well over a decade. The addition of GPU seems buggy and rough. It also doesn't work all that well when you want pixel perfection... I'm not expecting much out of CS5...

I couldn't agree more. I'll be sticking with Photoshop because nothing else comes close enough (for my needs), but it's the end of the road for my other Adobe apps, as there are now several decent alternatives available from developers who listen to their customers and update their apps more than once a year. As for Ps, I am hoping and praying that CS5 runs faster on 10.6 than CS4, which has slowed to a crawl (how Adobe managed that when all my other apps run faster on 10.6, I cannot even begin to imagine).
