Adobe CS 3 Blues

I am soooo frustrated with Adobe CS3. I've complained about it before. This is another warning! Photoshop sucks up more resources than my entire system. I am working on a MacBook Pro with 2 gigs of memory and I am here to tell you: It's not enough! You will experience lags of 3-6 minutes(!) while Photoshop collects data from the hard drive instead of memory. It will feel like PS died on you. (My work is all screenbased, my files are tiny). You will endure frustrating crashes, especially when using "Save for Web and Devices". The whole application often feels like a beached whale. I hoped for speedy and elegant and bought CS3 the day it came out, because I so wanted my tools to be optimized for the Intel chipset. Well, keep hoping!

Flash is not much better. Adobe opted to create an annoying fade-in-all-windows-when-switching-between-apps effect that accomplishes first and foremost a laggy response. Don't ever try to use the debugger before saving your work FIRST, you will experience crashes!
