3) The biggest change vis a vis Adobe for Lion is that all the crappy Java stuff and Flash stuff they use will be screwed up.
Try updating the Java (it's not automatically updated anymore), and it will likely work again as long as it's not CS4 or before.
Not buying it. If CS4 worked yesterday with the older OS, it should work today with the newer OS. This isn't like the transition from PowerPC to Intel. It isn't like Adobe is some tiny software company working out of a garage. I couldn't care less about Apple and Adobe's CEOs squabbling like the immature egotists that they are. Photoshop, Illustrator, et al are major software applications and Apple should have worked out the details with Adobe before releasing the software. And I shouldn't have to buy every release of Adobe products. CS4 isn't that old.
If Apple doesn't want their browser to support Flash, that's their business. There are other alternative browsers. But they should not be releasing an OS that corrupts the use of major applications. I've been using Apple since the introduction of the Apple II+, but Apple is lately getting me more and more pissed off. Their success is driving up their arrogance.
It's almost as if Apple could care less about users of professional applications. They seem to care much more about users of games and silly iPad and iPhone apps and those who waste their days sending tweets and obsessing over Facebook. Unfortunately, in an Apple OS vs. Windows world, there's no one else to fill the gap.
I will not be upgrading until those problems are worked out. I understand that my Nikon software isn't going to work either. My machine works fine as is - I'm perfectly ok with waiting.
