I'm slightly hostile because of their Acrobat Reader PDF plugin,  
which forced me to disable WebKit plugin capability in a couple of  
open source applications I'm associated with.  In all the controversy  
around InputManagers and other hacks (e.g. mach_inject), I'm  
surprised their hack has been ignored (or has it been fixed?).

The main problem I have when using Adobe applications is that I use  
them so seldom that I forget how to do things...since I find their  
user interfaces quite unintuitive, this is a nuisance.  TIFFany3 and  
Create are more useful and accessible than Adobe's apps for my needs  
(batch image processing and composing PDF figures and equations,  
respectively); YMMV.
