Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Well, this is interesting. The New York Times caught wind of a special and secret meeting between Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer and Adobe's frontman Shantanu Narayen. They claim the entire talk was dedicated to the fight against Apple, and one of the options discussed was... Microsoft acquiring Adobe.

I like how in CS4, you can’t choose Updates from the help menu until you’ve opened an image first. That’s really well thought out.

Hum... Maybe it needs a sample image for live regression testing ? =p

I also like how on Windows 7, the updater doesn’t work at all because it doesn’t run itself as administrator, and I had to go set that option to get it to work -- *and* then how that means that you can no longer use the Updates menu to launch the updater, until you set Photoshop itself to run as administrator.

That’s really well thought out.

Well, I would be more kind with them about this one. Windows lacks a centralized update system (like Microsoft Update or most Unices updaters), so Adobe had to create their own, which was obviously as quirky as update in application software can get. It's not the same as voluntarily ditching native UI widgets instead of using, say, a cross-platform wrapper like QT.
