Photoshop CS 3 - worst Photoshop version ever!

Ok, ok, ok... I bitched about it before...

Adobe CS Blues
Abobe CS3, OS X Installation Problems
Adobe Flash CS3 Unstable Crapware

... but I can't get over it because as a designer Photoshop effects my life every single day. I am miserable, angry and frustrated. If you actually use many layers and organize them folders - be warned! Even though my work is screen based with file sizes around 20 MB PS crashes and hangs and f***s up daily. You WILL restart your computer often. You WILL lose work and waste time.

I used to run PS on a Mac Quadra 605 with 20 MG of ram and "Ram Doubler" installed. I expected to sit and watch progress bars. Get used to it again.

I should have never updated to CS 3. This suite is a sham. It's a memory hog (MBP, 2.33 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 2 GB of ram).

If you would like to avoid a lot of this....

... and haven't bought CS 3 - save your nerves and don't buy it! It's not worth the money.

Wooow, somebody got angry here. CS3 must be really bad if Dirk is getting so upset.
I am happy I just use iPhoto for my simple personal needs. Thanks for the hint though!
