Who hates Adobe...

and their stupid pdf files with their annoying club hand for a pointer?

I know I do. It's so frustrating when you want to check out a site and all of a sudden everything goes blank, then this silly club fist comes on the screen and you can't point to anything... just scroll.

Grrrrrr. Maybe it's just me. Maybe I need to relax. Maybe I need more medication!

You haven't even begun to hate Adobe until you've used Adobe Acrobat Pro 6.0, what a steaming pile of **** that is, it's ok for creating pdf's, but it opens pdf's in your browser and takes about 2-3 minutes to finally open.

Pdf's are slow anyhow, Repligo is much, much faster.

Can't complain about Photoshop though, it's one of the best.

There is nothing to hate about Adobe, as for Microsoft, if you hate it don't use it. Use Linux then come back and tell me what you hate more.

It is. It's the first true plug and play OS. You look at previous attempts, and Windows 95 was a complete disaster. Windows 98 was half-way there, but still had many problems. XP, you plug anything in, and it most likely already has a driver for it built-in, ready to detect and install.

As much as I hate Microsoft, aside from security issues, there's not much bad I can say about XP.

I hate PDF files too. You can't just copy/paste like regular HTML, you have to re-type it all yourself. This is so annoying when you are writing research papers. :mad:

Photoshop is incredible, Premier looks amazing as well. WTF is wrong with adobe ? I personally hate that serial killer purple gorilla that you download who swings around like Richard Simmons in heat at the bottom of your screen telling you to do things. Bonzie Buddy or something stupid like that. I swear he told me to kill my neighbors and paint the swingsets with their blood.

Um that club hand is a scroller. You click down and hold and you'll see the fist "grab" the page and then you move your mouse up for it to scroll down on the page.

I actually like that feature.

The new acrobat takes way to long to load pdfs in the browser. I've taken to downloading the file to my desktop and loading it from there. Its not THAT far out of my way, but the bug needs to be fixed.
