Dear Adobe...

    I believe you're addressing some of your own issues in this post.

    You call Sketch and the other tools smaller because that's what they are. Smaller tools that do exact things. Photoshop and other tools are monolithic that do a number of things. Photoshop specifically has to be a lot of things for a lot of people.

    It also looks as if Adobe is trying to change no matter how many missteps they seem to be taking. But again, monolithic entity. With what we know about older tech companies they generally end up with a lot of managers and voices coming out of everywhere before things move.

    I linked this below under Sacha's comment but I'll do it again here: Photoshop is a city for everyone

    Edit: And this graphic, while I don't agree with some of them, shows that once you get big enough it's easy for smaller companies to pick off pieces. And in the case of some, can even use the platform to piggyback and vault yourself into a viable position.
