Adobe fears users going back to old versions.
I'm an advanced Photoshop user to the level of "almost guru". If you are curious take a look at the discussions taking place at Adobe rejecting the new features, per example the "new crop tool" it's a hell. 1 or 2 seconds lost per image mean a lot when you deal with tons of images per day.
There is a central discussion filled with complains and despite the price of the suite only the "cloud members" got an update to try to fix the problem. Adobe wants to push people into the cloud mode, but there is something else there, if you read the discussions you will see how many members are going back to previous versions of Photoshop that are fast and usable just because the new one sucks. I'm there too, I already did at home. At the company I work for it's impossible because the software version it's imposed so here we are working with something we love but now we hate.
Photoshop has many uses, don't misunderstood the comment from your sole point of view, consider the point of view of the many who are using it in a diff way and are not happy with it. Photoshop it's not just for painting and cropping, it's a serious color correction tool that happens to became more and more an "all public" tool.
Consider your notepad (you software developers) and they change the CTRL+C into ALT+F1+9, it sucks. Sure you can switch to other notepad like software, but not from Photoshop. PhotoStyler we miss you.
