I would like to warn you that if you are using Adobe Acrobat and NOT using Flash, Adobe is now going to shove Flash down your throat. I uninstalled Flash from my Mac well over a year ago, but after updating to Acrobat Pro 10.15 this weekend, existing PDF portfolios "suddenly" require Flash in order to open at all. This is an underhanded way of trying to force me to use software that is so full of holes it might as well be swiss cheese. Adobe continues to engage in behavior that does nothing but erode customer loyalty.

I ran across Alfred through links to one of the devs on a coding site and at first thought it would be more fluff than useful. Free to try, but I was skeptical about the Power Pack. About 10 minutes after downloading, I had the aha moment. Two weeks in and I am apparently hooked on the simplicity and usefulness that Alfred provides. I plan to buy the Power Pack happily sometime soon. I removed all the icons from my Dock and no longer reach for the mouse to launch apps or do other things. It works flawlessly and has very low overhead. Love this app. Plan to support it with my cash.

Having moved on to Chocolat I can look back and see it more clearly now. I don't know if Coda 2 went off track or I just out grew them, but it reminds me of something DeNiro said to Samuel Jackson in Jackie Brown. "What happened to you man? You used to be beautiful."

I have been watching Chocolat since it was an alpha last year. Last week I purchased a license at the $34 pre-release price after realizing Coda 2 wasn't going to do it for me. I have been very pleased with the "truffles" that extend this program's language syntax. There are some pretty powerful features hiding out in this quiet unassuming program.
My first full week on Chocolat and I had one crash, and a couple of questions. Best to use Twitter if you need support as email isn't their thing apparently.
Having been looking for a replacement for Coda 1.7.x and after trying TextMate, Sublime Text 2, Espresso and a bunch of others, Chocolat has gotten my money and I am happy with my decision. It just feels right.

I really want to like Coda 2 as I have been exclusively using Coda 1.7.x for the last two years. Last night I downloaded a copy from the App Store and jumped in to see the new features.
I am now left feeling like someone kicked me in the gut. I guess I would say Coda 2 is heading in a different direction than my web development. No syntax support for Haml, Coffeescript.
Code folding doesn't work for these either types unless you manually select a block and fold. The preview feature doesn't work for a Rails based site.
So then, download the demo and take it for a spin, but make sure it fits your needs. If it does, you will probably love it, otherwise you may have outgrown it. I immediately purchased a copy of Chocolat (itself still in beta) and am planning on saying goodbye to Coda. I feel like I am losing a friend.

I just got through reinstalling Acrobat 8.x and experienced the joy of updating every patch in sequence, so I agree that Adobe Updaters are a massive hassle.
I also upgraded to CS 5.5 and Acrobat X. PDF Portfolio feature is still half baked and Acrobat javascript performance is abysmal. Adobe encourages users to learn about extra tools and features, but then does a poor job supporting those same tools when they do not work as advertised.
Acrobat X seems to be more stable than 9 or 8, so maybe it is going in the right direction...

After a few years of holding out I decided to make the jump from Office 2007 to Office 2011 for Mac. After getting over the loss of all my customized ribbon interfaces, I am now finding Excel 2011 is seriously broken and hobbled to the point of being useless. Pivot tables aren't formatting properly. Page breaks in data tables aren't begin honored. Can't even find name management option for named ranges. All kinds of visual and interface quirks. I bought this so I could stop using Parallels since I upgraded to Lion and didn't want to buy another version. With a few months of work I might be able to figure out how to get my worksheets from 2007 to work correctly in 2011. Talk about a few steps backwards.
If you use Office, especially Excel, this steaming pile of an attempt to make a decent version of Office for Mac will only make you angry.
