I have a new client that has ordered a top of the line iMac with Adobe Master Collection
( against our advice of getting a 2.93 previous gen instead with 10.6.8 )
Has anyone actually used CS5.5 on Lion in a production situation.
Here is Adobe's list

I have heard several people call it a 'bag of hurt' and returned to snow leopard. They're developers mainly, I can imagine for print it's a lot worse.
For production, no way.

I have not moved to Lion, and will not for a while. But I am curious as well to how Adobe CS5 is running. The problems they list dont seem to big, at least for me. But I am sure there will be others coming from users.
I usually have more issues with plugins then the adobe apps themselves.

I'd be happy to hear from ONE person. :baby:
Also minor note Bluetooth managed to kernel panic my test lappie TWICE and of course the restore to previous state simply made it do it again....grrrrrr

Would love to upgrade to Lion eventually but our printer is not supported yet. One thing that I do know is that you have to install the JRE before even trying to install CS 5.5, as Lion doesn't include it in the normal install. Install the Java runtime (JRE) | Mac OS 10.7 Lion (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/909/cpsid_90908.html)
But as soon as our drivers are updated for our printers, (can't afford not to print) we will be making the switch over to Lion.

I've got CS4 on my MBP, not my production machines. CS4 runs fine so I cant imagine CS5 being any worse.

flash player, java runtimes, so much for working out of the box anymore.
Interesting to hear about CS4, what are you using it for?
