Merlin Mann on Adobe

With CS4, Adobe has neared the tipping point where a large amount of power users are complaining.

Each release of the Adobe apps I use (and used to so depend on) feels less stable, more bloated, and … increasingly less Mac-like. Or at least less OS X-like.

Kinda reminds me of Microsoft in 1993 or whenever it was they released Word 6. … It installed dozens of crufty extensions, looked just awful, and ran with the pluck and elegance of an incontinent grizzly bear with the gout.
