For what's it worth, I had this exchange earlier today with Jeffrey Tranberry at Adobe:
Got a question, Jeffrey, even though you have ignored me so far: on the Luminous Landscape forums, Jeff Schewe, a consultant to Adobe, says that Adobe was well aware of our coming anger, but that obviously Adobe doesnt care, because Photoshop isnít now and never was aimed at us amateurs.
Now, I donít know why you still have a job, seeing that youíre trying to placate an audience your company apparently couldnít care less about, but since you are still here, is Jeff speaking the truth and nothing but the truth?

Jeff Scheweís views are his own. Photoshopís strength is that is used by a wide variety of users Ė and I for one appreciate them all Ė and I know my teammates on the Photoshop and Lightroom development teams do as well. Most everyone on the development team are also users/avid photographers who use the products they create. They put a lot of love and hard work into the products they develop.

Thank you, Jeffrey. I can only imagine the types of discussions taking place in house at Adobe right now.
