Ah, here we go again. I already have this feeling that in one or two years I’m just gonna write a similar post about the then to be released CS7, but isn’t it amazing how predictably history repeats itself? You know, every time Adobe release a new version of their products, inevitably soon after forums are full of those insane posts. First, there’s the people who complain about the product not being available 5 minutes after midnight as if they could no longer bear working in their current version. Then there’s the other kind, who dutifully bought their upgrades (or were coaxed in doing so by those last minute offers) only to realize that their computers suck and they can’t use it. and then there’s of course the ones who were blinded by Adobe‘s marketing into thinking that those downloads would actually be available right away and those upgrades would work on the spot, only to find out that they got wrong serial numbers and the stinker that they call Adobe Download Assistant is still as unreliable as it ever was. Especially the latter puts some not so good light on their Creative Cloud promise of making your software available everywhere. Imagine being stuck with those issues while travelling and not even being able to call phone support. *booh* It’s funny how I’m already reading those forum posts and all those errors look all too familiar except for the version moniker having been incrmented by one. That shall be a few interesting weeks to come. To all the lucky ones who can get it working without a hitch: Happy CS6-ing, I guess!
