Yup. Based on the past 24-hours, dumb move. CC is truly not ready for prime time.
First my reasoning behind trying the wretched software. My wife is a graphic designer on Mac. I'm a photog on PC. Between us, we use Photoshop, Acrobat, Illustrator, InDesign, and I use Muse and Dreamweaver. My wife is on CS5 versions for everything except InDesign, whereas I'm an CS6 for Photoshop, and CS5 and CS4 for everything else. (My wife even still uses Acrobat 8 while I'm at least on 10.) Since the only program I really use on both my desktop and laptop is Photoshop, I could deal with the activate/deactivate cycle. I figured it was cheaper to go ahead and do Adobe CC and share between the two of us than to have individual updates on everything to the CS6 level. So.... I signed up.
What crap. First of all, everything is a download install. I can't just download an installer file once and then run it on both my laptop and desktop (of course Macs are different). Also, there is ZERO control over where you install -- unlike disk based software. I use an SSD for my system drive and have a separate 1GB hard drive for my program and storage (as well as tons of externals for various things). There is no option to customize. I have different partitions for different types of software: D drive is generally things like InDesign and Illustrator, E: drive is for Photoshop, Lightroom, etc., and F: drive is for my web stuff. Works for me. But Adobe wants to cram all it's stuff under Windows Programs stating it works better. No it doesn't. Make no difference. I had to drag the Photoshop CC folder to the E: drive and then monkey with the Registry to make sure it all worked correctly.
I called tech support to discuss the issue with them as well as error messages I was getting (Runtime errors starting). Absolutely clueless. This is what you get when you offshore tech support to people who aren't really all that familiar with computers and software (beyond the "script" they've been provided). You pay gobs of money for zero support. By the way, I was lead to believe by Adobe sales support that I could do all the things I wanted to do -- not having to do multiple downloads, custom install, etc. Lying dogs.
Adobe has big problems. Not only have they pissed off a huge pro base with this cloud crap, but they've poorly implemented their so-called cloud service.
