Dear Adobe: Top 100

Post by BlackVenom on Fri 19 Jun 2009, 11:26 pm


1. (+282) Why does the Acrobat Reader take two minutes to launch, and require updates twice a month, just to display PDF pages? #289
2. (+245) Please stop annoying me with installer updates when all I want to do is view PDFs in my browser. #406
3. (+242) adobe reader takes too long to open PDFs #242
4. (+239) Lower your prices #87
5. (+239) please stop bloating each new release of Adobe Reader with unnecessary crap. 200MB+ for reading PDF's? puuhh-lease. #927
6. (+238) Stop creating new features and make your software fast, stable and straightforward. #113
7. (+235) please cut out the DRM crap, and price your products reasonably. #70
8. (+234) Please create an installer that puts your software on my computer in less time than it takes to install an operating system. #403
9. (+232) For the next version, please could you stop adding features and work on performance and stability instead? #381
10. (+230) Please fix your update system. I am tired of constant requests to run patches that won't install. Acrobat is a fucking nightmare. #195
11. (+229) Why does Photoshop cost as much as a pre-owned small car? Drop the price please!! #215
12. (+226) Skip CS4. CS3 does everything we need for now, and no one is going to catch up with you, not even Quark. Instead of forcing another version down our throats bloated with unnecessary features, you could instead take some time to make a new version that focuses on stability and performance. #161
13. (+226) Could you make Adobe Reader start up slower? I'd like to have enough time to go get a sandwich before I read a one page document. #614
14. (+225) please don't set Acrobat to be the default pdf viewer every time it gets updated. It's massively slower and clunkier than preview, and I don't want to use it. #271
15. (+225) Your installer is the worst piece of software on the planet... well, actually, your updater is worse. For the love of all things good, fix it. #505
16. (+223) Make my 2009 Photoshop faster than Photoshop 3.5 #400
17. (+222) The world is global now. Please fix your pricing. Thank you. #452
18. (+220) Why does the updater only run when I launch an Adobe program? If I'm *launching* an Adobe program, it means I'm *about to do something*, which is the LEAST convenient time for Adobe to tell me to quit all my programs (including Firefox and Outlook) so it can run the updater. Grr... #319
19. (+213) Please update your Updater so that it won't take 110% of my CPU just to download some files. #593
20. (+212) Sort out your god-awful installers. WHY do I need to close my BROWSER when installing a graphics application? I'm using it, dammit! Not least to give me something to do while eons pass and your installers dawdle along. #32
21. (+212) Please make a lightweight version of the pdf reader #668
22. (+210) I really don't want a 'My eBooks' folder. Please ask first. #524
23. (+207) Why do you install six "helper" applications in the background when all I want is Photoshop? Keep your Bridge to nowhere the fuck off my system. #602
24. (+206) Give up on Updater. There are far better (read: less obnoxious) ways to update an app. #175
25. (+206) remember when your applications were lightning fast? I miss that. #419
26. (+205) Get your fucking installers sorted out. Why do i need to CLOSE MY BROWSER to install a graphics app? I'm doing shit with my browser, you know, during the tedious wait for your installer to finish. #30
27. (+205) Why is Adobe Reader using more RAM than Supreme Commander? #156
28. (+205) slim down Acrobat Reader in to something more like Foxit Reader #724
29. (+204) why should a PDF reader need to connect to the internet whenever it feels like it and have start-on-boot components that evidently do nothing since disabling them has no noticeable effect? #177
30. (+204) Better font browser in Photoshop, please? #224
31. (+204) Please read this website. #398
32. (+204) Let me keep my browser open while you update your programs. Or eat hair. The choice is yours. #532
33. (+203) You know what would be nice? Finally standardizing the interface between ALL of your applications. #19
34. (+202) Adobe Updater is the single worst piece of software I have ever seen. Please fuck off with that. #362
35. (+202) Quality is better than quantity. #891
36. (+201) Please read and consider everything written on this website. It's for your own good #110
37. (+199) Stop adding features. Focus on stability, speed and removing bloat. #475
38. (+198) please don't copy microsoft's naming and bundling conventions. I want CS3 not CS3 pro, CS3 pro advantage, CS3 pro plus, CS3 no frills, CS3 pro max, CS3 pro extra pro max... #366
39. (+198) Stop bundling crap with Reader - I don't want AIR installed unbeknownst to me! #555
40. (+197) Please kill the retarded Adobe Downloader, it's 2008 #701
41. (+197) Please lower your prices #933
42. (+195) Why oh why is Updater.app such garbage? It's 2008 already - why do I need to close Safari so you can update InDesign, exactly? #343
43. (+195) Please stop forcing your PDF plug-ins into every orifice of OS X. Apple designed Preview for a reason. Fucking deal with it. #516
44. (+195) Could you please make your updater application _not_ suck and take up all of my processors /and/ make me shut down all of my browsers? #521
45. (+194) can Photoshop and Illustrator (and InDesign, etc.) please just work the same? Same guides, same text tools, etc. #36
46. (+193) Your updaters suck. And Acrobat's bloatware. #264
47. (+192) Please stop raising your upgrade prices. I'm sick of paying for your merger. #487
48. (+192) please either make the vector tools in Photoshop work like completely like Illustrator, or just leave them out. Their half-assedness is aggravating. #511
49. (+190) Flash Player needs to perform the same on Mac as it does on Windows. Crazy idea, right? #857
50. (+187) give the same keyboard shortcuts to the same functions no matter what app. if you say you're going for consistency, then be fucking consistent. #294
51. (+187) Why do you think it's reasonable for your updater to steal focus while I'm typing and interpret my keystrokes as approval to reboot my machine? #789
52. (+187) Your updater sucks. Make it, perhaps, suck less. #864
53. (+185) Enable auto-recover for Photoshop, so when it inevitably crashes for the 9th time today I can get back to the corporate schlock I was working on. #28
54. (+185) please, please, please make all the shortcuts in all your applications the same. is it really that hard? #93
55. (+185) Please make photoshop give my ram back when I quit #354
56. (+185) Please sort out the rubbish auto-update feature of Acrobat Reader. #346
57. (+184) charge less. #72
58. (+184) Please stop telling me Acrobat has been updated and I need to restart. #288
59. (+183) Please stop keeping the PC and Mac versions separate. One combined version, one license. How hard is that? #950
60. (+182) Why oh why is Updater.app such garbage? It's 2008 already - why do I need to close Safari so you can update InDesign, exactly? #45
61. (+182) Why the hell do I need both "Adobe Help Viewer 1.0" and "Adobe Help Viewer 1.1"? This is the laziest excuse for terrible programming imaginable. At least make an effort to hide your incompetence. #637
62. (+181) Lower your pricing already. #570
63. (+180) Don't make VersionCue integral to Photoshop so the 98% of us who don't know what it is and the 25% of us for whom it doesn't work and won't update don't have to put up with it #625
64. (+180) Please lower international pricing - why do we have to pay more than 100% more than US customers. Even online! #956
65. (+179) Please remember that some of us are starving artists and don't have hundreds of dollars to shell out on your products every year! Try to make it reasonable to stay on top of technology!! #304
66. (+179) You're fucking expensive #754
67. (+177) Please make your international pricing fair. #548
68. (+176) Please make your applications consistent. #101
69. (+176) please sort your installers out. I can't believe the byzantine kludge you make of my lovely clean file system. Applications/ and /Library/Application Support/ should be all you need. #115
70. (+176) Your Installation programs take WAY too long to work. #218
71. (+176) Make your products cheaper... #1025
72. (+175) Why are your products so friggin' expensive? #245
73. (+175) Please rationalise you prices around the globe. $99 to update to Lightroom 2 is not 99 Euros. Be fair to those who use your products outside the US. #952
74. (+175) I didn't ask for Bridge to install with CS3. #1111
75. (+174) Why is your software so hideously overpriced? #638
76. (+173) Why do you cost so much ... #252
77. (+173) Please stop installing two hidden Opera browsers with the CS suite, I have enough browsers. Oh, and please let me run those other browsers while you are installing or updating something. #518
78. (+173) Don't save all your bug fixes for the new version I have to upgrade to. Release some for the product I already bought. #858
79. (+172) you are really damn expensive #287
80. (+172) Please make run Adbobe Reader run as fast as the Preview app on the Mac #1011
81. (+171) i love you but you're expensive #14
82. (+171) Why the fuck to you have to force this Stock Photo, Bridge crap on me? #290
83. (+170) why can't I copy/paste formatted text from one of your expensive applications into another one of your expensive applications #461
84. (+169) Stop price-gouging your international customers. #688
85. (+169) International customers should be charged the exact same price for Adobe software purchased and downloaded from adobe.com as customers in the USA. It's the same .exe file (or Mac install file) from Australia to Brazil to Nigeria to the USA so it should be the exact same price. In USD or Euros. Stop ripping off non-Yanks! #1122
86. (+168) Do you think its smart to put the names of the developers up when the product is taking forever to load? #598
87. (+168) Mouse wheel. Learn what it is. #478
88. (+166) Stop selling me suites. Or let me select programs for my suite. #473
89. (+165) Why are you charging me an extra £240 just because I’m in the UK? I love your software, but I hate that I’m paying 73% more than my colleagues in the US… #437
90. (+165) please don't charge DOUBLE for your apps in Europe just because you can. It makes you even more evil than Microsoft. #1112
91. (+164) Let me change the opacity on multiple layers at once! #51
92. (+164) New features are great... only once you get the old ones right. #190
93. (+164) stop being so damned expensive #192
94. (+164) Sort out your installers. They make baby Jesus cry #325
95. (+164) Why is it easy to make a transparent gradient in Photoshop and so damned involved in Illustrator. Could they not be the same? #378
96. (+164) I installed Acrobat 7, then had to restart my computer six times in a row -- once for each patch. It is not 2001. This kind of bullshit is no longer acceptable. #599
97. (+163) why, if I've paid thousands of dollars for your products but want a hard copy, can you not just give me a freaking key to use on the downloaded copy while I wait a week for your fulfillment process to get my stuff to me?? Paying customer!! And you guys aren't cheap. Cost me a day worth of hourly pay waiting and hours of frustration with your customer "support". #187
98. (+163) just because i installed acrobat does not mean i want it installed in my web browser - my computer, my choices - douchebags #676
99. (+163) please do a LIGHT acrobat reader (hint: foxit readerà #887
100. (+162) why are your products so expensive? #301

I haven't got the time to read those 100 but I believe that they are all correct. I use foxit reader, much more faster and light weight.
