I do scan & edit my slides using PS6. But not an expert in image editing . 
I feel the GUI of PS is very bad, though it may do splendid job in image 
The "Actions" are a buggy; few times I lost my scans due to those bugs.
With Adobe, I need to struggle to get know basic things. 

I have used computer MS software packages a lot and they are comparitively 
better in GUI & help-docs.  

I feel Abode needs strong competetor like MS, which may force Adobe to provide 
value-for-money product.
Strong competation may also improove GUI and reduce the bugs.

Adobe used to be a very responsive company, back when only professionals
used the products (they only made a few major products, and most of
those were purchased from other companies). When I ran into some
problems with version 2.5 and 3 they assigned me a specific person in
Adobe whom I dealt with throughout the process.  It involved interfacing
with Wacom tablets, so they were also involved, and we kept in touch by
phone and email for months while working on it.

Today, Adobe makes dozen of products, and many of those product come in
assorted flavors and sizes.  They have so many things on the go, that
any one issue probably becomes just another "we'll eventually get to
it".  The ownership and leadership of Adobe also changed hands as it
became larger and more public a company.  It was started by some math
professors with some good ideas on describing font outlines which became

Basically, today they've become another MS, and if I'm not mistaken they
are the second largest software developer after MS.

Who said "bigger is better" ?
