I think they are working on it, its just taking them forever i guess, i think they are more focused on flash now that they own it. hopefully they will release a friendlier version soon, i need an upgrade.
Oh yeah, they're doing an ok job. I just like to gripe about them because it gives me an out for all that pent up anger at the daily crashing....-cough-. They've added some great stuff, esp with CS4.
I do remember evaluating CS3 at my old job to see if an upgrade would be useful. They'd busted a command I used almost like clockwork, I couldn't believe it. I flew over to their forums and squawked like a crazy flamingo at them. They said "Oh, we knew that was broken, but it was too late to fix the code before shipping! We're so sorry, we'll fix that next time."
I did not recommend CS3 for purchase. Thankfully, CS4 fixed the problem, and I am a happy panda again. ^^ It seems like they do listen, you just have to scream really loud...
PS: I don't think a million angel tears could fix the mess that is Flash :\
