Adobe is the worst

Pretty low on the list of things that should be illegal but aren’t, I know, but still, this use of desktop push notifications should be illegal.

Screenshot of a Mac desktop push notification from Adobe soliciting the purchase of additional software. "Add Acrobat to your plan and unlock po... Buy now."

Of all the software/services we spend money on, Adobe software is what I resent the most.

Their pricing, subscription licensing and billing practices, customer support, team management tools, and abuse of notifications…all of it…it’s just the worst.

If someone produced a viable alternative to InDesign for print layout, we would switch right away.

    My favorite is when Portable Document Format files don’t port. The worst indeed.
