Merlin Mann on the state of Adobe apps:
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.
Designers are practically living inside these apps, so every little point of friction (like the less Mac-like UI) becomes a pain in time.
