    I down graded yesterday to CC 2014 because the updates to Photoshop and Illustrator were so bad. I plan on ripping as many Adobe products out of my workflow as I can over the next few weeks.

      I also went back to CC 2014, that’s a first for me actually; I usually embrace all of the changes, but this time I was downright disappointed and I don’t want to go back up.

    It befuddles me; I often think about it.

    Pre-2015 everything worked fine(ish). And now, many crashes, sluggish and images and elements display completely messed up when it's a hefty document (which is my every day).

    As soon as the sprint is over, goodbye Adobe. Hello Affinity + Sketch.

      I'd be interested to hear what you think of Affinity. I'm considering switching too.

        Hey Andy, I've not actually used Affinity Designer, if that's what you're wondering about. However I purchased Affinity Photo yesterday and it's quite god damn fantastic! Later, I'd like to try Affinity Designer :)

        You're thinking of replacing Illustrator with Affinity Designer, or were you asking about Affinity in general?

          I'm thinking of switching entirely to Affinity (both Designer and Photo) if it means I can completely ditch Illustrator and Photoshop for the same functionality. The only thing I'm worried about is the time commitment to get used to hotkeys and workflows for certain things. Even just minute things like selecting objects within groups (Cmd + Opt + Drag Select) in Illustrator is something I use frequently, for instance.

    I had a chance to test it - the sluggish colour picker is still there.

    This short clip is a pretty accurate representation of what adobe understands by adequate performance in an update called 2015.

    I don't see anything in the change notes about weird GPU processing issues with normal shapes and text — really hope that's been addressed, because it makes 2015 basically unusable for me!

        No doubt, that's the easy solution and I'm just acting entitled. I was psyched for GPU acceleration when I thought I wouldn't have to run in low-resolution mode so illustrator doesn't chug on my retina mbp, but the weird rendering quirks drove me crazy and haven't seemed worth it.
