Why focus on a platform where the company is not willing to work with you on other areas? And frankly, CS is one of the top three reasons people purchase Mac desktops these days (video editing, music recording and processing, and desktop publishing being the top three uses of the Mac desktops) - would it put pressure on Apple to work with Adobe? Yes, I know, its reactionary and negati
