I agree 100%, its the same with itunes. Why do they force me to install their shitty software everytime I want to access a friends ipod, when all it does it turn a representation of folders into a representation of icons?
Why did macromedia fireworks go from a 40mb install when it was a macromedia fireworks disc, to over 600mb when it became adobe fireworks? Their software, like real and apple, is packed with redundant crap that noone needs.

I got here after Googling "Adobe is Shit!" oddly. Good read. Heh ha. While I am a fan of Photoshop and can't say anything bad about it, anything else Adobe puts out (or ruins, like Flash) I fucking hate!

I'm currently waiting for Adobe Premiere CS4 to finish deinstalling. It's been, what? Twenty minutes? Thirty? I've been zapped back in time to the 1980s. A period I wasn't born in but what must surely have had many a patient fucker sitting at slow-ass desktop computers waiting on installs and deinstallations. Heroes to the last, me thinks. Are they working at Adobe and are trying to bring back the good old days?

Seems my MONSTER rig is trying to sift through the shit that was the Premiere software, and to eradicate every last binary speck of it. Must be hard work because it's normally reliably rapid at all it does - which is why I'm so pissed off at Adobe right now. I thought the install was long, but this is taking the piss.

Quite right. Don't bother with Adobe. It is crap! Any good book seller will have their own tool for downloading ebooks...Amazon! In ten years time Adobe will be a thing of the past.

Google It

Software does NOT patronize you with terms you don't know. If you don't know them, learn it (pretty easy) or shut the hell up.
Photoshop is probably one of the most user friendly advanced raster graphics editors out there.
How to learn: Google it. Seriously.
About everything else(e.g. install process), spot on.
