CC2015 is so bad I bought a copy of Sketch.

    Soooo... Still have not been able to update to at least check it out.

    For the 3rd Fn time, the Creative Cloud installer has become corrupted.

    And, downloading the "Creative Cloud Cleaner" - doesn't do jack.

    I can't think of any other software I use, which has this crap hack of a piece of software a "Cleaner" to address their bloat, and even that - still fails.....

    The last time this happened, I had to spend 30 minutes on a call with a guy who didn't have a solid command of English, who was simply reading from prompts.

    The day is close when I will be able to detach myself from the Adobe ecosystem.

    Adobe gives me the same feeling banks and telecoms give me.


    I regrettably hand over my money and view those institutions with contempt.

    Where in contrast, there are companies I actually get delight in handing my money over to.

    I see my credit card get dinged by Spotify and I actually feel a bit happy. I really enjoy the service, they get the customer and it's a good value.

    When the Dropbox charge appears, I rationalize it. I find it valuable.

    And I happily handed over my money to the people at Sketch and I happily hand my money over to the folks at Invision every month for one simple reason.

    They GET designers.

    They listen to the customer.

    When the Adobe charge appears in my inbox, I feel a tinge of hatred and contempt. As a customer, one feels trapped and damned if you do, damned if you don't.

    If this thread demonstrates anything, one could easily surmise that Adobe is out of touch with their audience(s) across the board. The company is stabbing at all angles and hitting none.

    If I were an Adobe shareholder reading this thread, I would dump them and run for the hills.
