    adobe--- yeah, they oughta be. Figma, to me, is precisely what I was looking for. It's now my number one platform for designing on. I don't think it's possible to have been a bigger supporter of Adobe...I've been a fan-boy for years....been working on photoshop since version 2.... but, as they years went on, and my focus became more and more web/UI/UX related, it just didn't do the trick, and was holding me back. I was reluctant to get on the Sketch bandwagon, since I'd invested so much time and practice with Adobe...and then when Sketch suddenly became the defacto tool for UI/UX, I was worried that I'd missed the boat... then, whamo...FIGMA.... took barely a few moments to get comfortable using it, and it was exactly what I wanted... now...if only we could get some animation in there :) hopefully, that will come with time :) I also seriously hope they stay as customer friendly as they've been thus far. that's HUGE for the community at large...and they've been amazing thus far....
