This is not in this article but 'sometime in the Fall' , what is that, snow fall?
This is a concern "The casual Photoshop user won't recognize too much of a difference in the software over the existing version, these people say."
You mean to say after all this word porting to 'Cocoa' there is no User Interface improvement? Is the GUI ported to Cocoa or not? Is it going to look like a crappy piece of legacy Carbon? How can they possibly and supposedly 're-write' the GUI in Cocoa for it to be unchanged to the end user? I can tell the difference between FireFox and Camino.
This concerns me also.
If they were re-writing the thing in Cocoa, the GUI would be the first thing to change would it not?
It seems to me that what they are doing here is making the underpinnings of the program 64 bit, but not changing the GUI, and not necessarily using an all Cocoa development environment. So despite what they've been saying for years, they actually (probably) *aren't* changing their development environment at Adobe and are still using the cross-platofrm (i.e. - Windows) tools to create the products.
The whole point of why Photoshop sucks is not
because it's not 64 bit "under the hood."
- Photoshop sucks because it uses an inconsistent, custom, Windows-style UI written in Flash.
- Photoshop sucks because the installer was written in 1993.
- Photoshop sucks because it uses proprietary memory management.
- Photoshop sucks because it includes a bunch of crap that no one uses or wants (like the "3-D" stuff they are focussing on according to this article.)
They aren't listening to their customers at all. They're changing all the stuff that no one cares about but leaving in all the problems that people have been writing about for years.
I think they must be just batshit insane over at Adobe. There is no other explanation.
