Adobe and Macromedia Both Suck Durable Link to this BLOG
Adobe and Macromedia Both Suck (via CamWorld)

As both Adobe and Macromedia engage in a pissing contest of lawsuits and counter-law suites, I am glad that I stopped using both companies' products. Both these companies suck, their products also suck. I do not recommend their products to my friends, my family, or my customers.

Tips on avoiding Adobe, Macromedia

  • Use Jasc Paint Shop Pro -- it is cheaper, easier, and more importantly, a simpler product than Adobe PhotoShop. All the graphics on this site (and that is a lot of graphics) is done with this software.
  • Demand/provide alternate formats to Adobe Acrobat -- Use LaTex, HTML, text or whatever. Acrobat is a properietary, insecure (we know the Adobe goof, up don't we?) format.
  • Disable Macromedia Flash -- I know this is hard because the browser will keep pestering you to download the Flash plugin. The trick is to find a file called swflash32.ocx on your computer and simply delete it. The browse won't ask you again, and the your eyes will thank you for it.
  • Junk Macromedia Homesite -- It has no drag-drop, no Intellisense, and so slow to open a network drive. (Microsoft Visual Studio is a worthy substitute.)
