I never forgave Adobe for the travesty that was Photoshop 4.
I actually use 5 and 6 at work, but for my purposes at home, 3 does everything I need it to. (Plus the shortcuts are hardwired into my brain*.) In that respect, I'm probably technology companies' worst nightmare consumer - as much as I like the latest gadgetry, I don't upgrade if what I already have works fine. Hell, I still use Word 5.1 for writing, and despite being a full-on Mac fan have no desire *at all* to switch to OS X...
(*Do *not* get me started on Office 2001. Whichever fuckwit decided that Apple-K in Excel should no longer mean 'delete' but should instead mean 'insert hyperlink' - why would anyone need a hyperlink in a frickin' spreadsheet? - should be dragged naked around the campus at Redmond behind a dune buggy by their balls!)
