I know Adobe actually does beta-test their software, but sometimes

I've been caught shouting at my computer, "DOESN'T ANYONE


I learned on Permiere 4.2, I continue to use Premiere (P-5.1 [after the P-5

disaster...] and P-6), but I still curse its "opacity" ('til I find work-arounds)

and bugs (even after I find work-arounds...), and continue to like it for what

I do (sorta, even when putting up with silly changes in the newer versions...;-),

but I may stop with P-6... Or, I may put up with P-7's single-track editing and

lack of menu controls to continue with software that does still do some things

quite well... It would be nice, though, if Adobe always retained the best of the

earlier software when introducing "updates", and paid more attention to

how most people like to use their software, and also to minimizing bugs (after

a while, patience does run thin...).
