Merlin Mann on Adobe

Merlin Mann:

Each release of the Adobe apps I use (and used to so depend on) feels less stable, more bloated, and — easy as this was to overlook for a REALLY long time — increasingly less Mac-like. Or at least less OS X-like. They feel like sketches of OS X applications, drawn from memory.

I’ve written before about how “non-Mac-like” is often a non-specific insult, that it really just means “I don’t like that”. But in a way, that’s exactly what’s wrong with the modern Adobe CS suite. It does all sorts of things Mac users don’t like.
