The worst update ever, I'll rather use CS3 than this crap. And the worst part - its file is not compatible with older versions. My studio is on pause because of it. Loosing around 50k a day because of this update.

Not good at all. Bloated beta crapware. I hate it. Buy Affinity Designer. And yes, we pay for CC.

Leaving aside the whole issue of OS compatibility and cloud subscription (of which Im not a fan), the new version absolutely screams. It took Adobe years to add GPU acceleration to Illustrator after Photoshop got it back in CS6. If you are working on large multi layered art, this is a solid upgrade.

So, after 15 years of my requesting it (along with other people) Adobe finally increased the zoom percentage to a decent amount. Thanks Adobe, but I already found something better.

Whilst I still use Illustrator CS6, because I am very familiar with it, the subscription model and sense of 3 decades of frustrations with a bloated UI means I am moving on to Sketch and the new boy Affinity Designer which looks really REALLY hot: https://affinity.serif.com/beta-download/ Adobe's problems are that whilst it has the mature software. that works with difficulties, they have never sat down and rethought how they should work. Just bolted on ever more feature requests to the point you can never find anything. A lot of the Adobe features i want don't work. e.g. Batch processing won't do the very things I want it to do, such as colour mode and auto save to format of my choice. It can just be a massive waste of time. I want my timer back thank you. Don't even bother going to the Indesign User Groups any more because it feels like a time warp.

Thanks for bringing Affinity Designer to our attention! Illustrator surely has become bloatware.

Affinity Designer is great as far as it goes, but is missing a lot of features. The one that personally stops me adopting it is lack of vector pattern support - I use pattern fills a lot and could not move to AD until it has this feature.

I’m not quite sure why this update took so long to show up on MacUpdate because CC 2014 was released a couple of months ago. Regardless, if you have a Creative Cloud subscription you start to look at Adobe updates in a new light. Updates just happen, whenever, and you never have to worry about ordering a new version of the Creative Suite since the updates are automatic and immediately available for downloading. Sometimes there aren’t a lot of obvious changes between a new version and the version that preceded it, such as between Illustrator CC 2014 and original CC. If anything, some noticeable “improvements” aren’t: a login screen that never goes away unless you can find a way to turn it off (rather than being in interface preferences, the on/off switch for this feature is hidden) and TypeKit integration which is both annoying and confusing. But if you’re a professional, Creative Cloud apps such as Illustrator are essential and the integration between Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign is unmatched. (Who even is Adobe’s competition? Microsoft? Corel? Quark? I don’t think so.) InDesign imports raw AI and PSD files; AI can open and edit PDF files saved by Photoshop and InDesign. Illustrator files can be copied and pasted into Photoshop and remain live and editable. The list of features is endless. And over time, they keep getting better.

and yet most of the reviews here are based on their so called "rental" software.

Creative Cloud is the rental software everyone is talking about. Whether you call it a rental, a lease or something else, it is -- for better or worse -- the new normal in the software world. The complete suite, which is the most economical, ranges from $25 to $50 a month (plus tax) depending on if you have a trial, or if you qualify for an education discount or some other discount. If you are using the suite professionally, and can bill the cost, it is totally worth up to $600 a year since you can use EVERY Adobe program and many of their online services, like TypeKit.

Yah i mean most of the negative review are based on 'they have to pay to use". But actually what adobe offers is quite a value for money and feature rich. From tutorials, add-ons, type kit, cc drive, extensions and new software.

Only thing i wanted them to do is increase the creative cloud drive at least 100gb!

The problem with renting software is that there is no "rent control" and little other "housing" available. "Edact2" posted that the cost for everything in Creative Cloud ranges from $25 to $50 per month depending upon educational discount, previous license, etc. What is omitted is, like introductory pricing for cable TV, those prices are not what you end up paying after the second year, or even at all if Adobe decides to raise them. Looking at current pricing, the actual cost for the CC suite for a non-student/teacher, or almost all users past the second year of use is $50 per month, $70 if you want the business version with greater storage and central management. And these costs, like cable TV, are sure to go up over time. In effect, with the move to a subscription model, Adobe is forcing all users to pay to upgrade every year versus the traditional purchase of software where we could wait for a few upgrade cycles and see if the upgrades are even worth the extra expense. In the past, if the upgrades added no value or were too expensive for the added benefit, we could just keep using the version we already purchased... not anymore; now you are forced to pay or the software deactivates. Software rental sucks. Granted, with system software changes even purchased software will likely eventually "deactivate" since you won't be able to run it anymore, but given the time span of usage, the return on the investment is much higher for the consumer. Some businesses might like the idea of paying incrementally... if that's the case, their accountant needs to compare the costs of taking out a loan to pay for software using a traditional purchase model (and skipping one version release as most did) vs rental. Even with high interest on a small loan for purchased software, the traditional way was cheaper.
