    Only thing I can say to existing users of the Adobe suite is, don't stop complaining about this, mobilize others to chime in-- else it will just become the new normal. It truly is a shame, because Adobe has such a fine suite of applications-- this new clunky launcher platform should be an options for people trying to decide whether or not to subscribe-- not mandated to existing users of the software (who want function and uber-simplicity). It is quite simple to make the options available to choose one or the other-- not offering that choice may have its motives in the marketing arena.

    None of this is the big stuff of life-- there are far more important things to grapple with every day, for sure. But from the customer appreciation and business reputation angle, the clear message on this thread is "pay attention to existing subscribers as priority #1, not just prospective subscribers". Word of mouth will draw people to the platform. It's how I moved to Adobe, and am very glad I did (minus the new launcher...).

    I hope Adobe is monitoring this thread-- it is grassroots feedback, and the message is overwhelmingly clear. We like the Adobe suite a lot-- but are asking for our minimalist launcher/updater back (perhaps even more minimalist...).

    Still wondering why this abomination is still here. Tried using it tonight, am starting to wonder if this is just an early April fools joke. Nothing would be purposely designed this way-- every click is a new lesson in how not to do something. Please, please, return to the previous minimalist, functional design-- or just remove the launcher all together. And if this is an early April fools joke, you got us!

    I am flabbergasted that this new clunky app launching environment is still here. It seems abundantly clear that this new app environment is an epic fail to the real user base-- hard to degrade a functional and exquisitely simple environment any worse, really. Fair to say that most of us want the previous environment back. This feels like one of those disconnected rollouts, an idea from management to be force-fed-- probably marketing/sales related instead of customer-functionality related. I would surmise that developers with an eye for design are embarrassed and frustrated as well. Please restore the previous environment. Or at least give an option to restore the minimalist design. Thanks.

    Adobe has gone from an elegant, simple and well organized launch/update of it's apps to the feel of a startup company. There are "many" apps in the adobe world-- and adding unintuitive complexity and a cumbersome navigation into organizing them, as can be seen from the 100% negative feedback, seems disconnected from the real user experience. So, I have just removed the launcher from startup, and will go back to the old fashioned way-- windows, start, and load it from there-- will do manual updates from within the app. Just can't use this thing, yuck. Please restore the previous, excellent design as soon as possible.

    Yes, I think the previous app launcher was far better- this new interface just has far too much clutter and detail. One thing loved about the Adobe launch pad, before, was that it had a minimalist professional feel, and was simple, compact, and useful. New interface is a head scratcher for sure, and not useful at all. Please restore the launch pad to the bare minimum (the way it was last week...). Thanks!
