I am really concerned by the comments here. Everyone just seems so angry and violent. I think Adobe understands that the larger interface is not liked by the community as a whole, but let's be honest, it's just a software application here, it's not the end of the world, and no one is dying from it, so can we just dial it down a notch or two please, thanks.
Now, to get back on topic, I don't think there is anything inherently wrong with this larger interface, but I do take issue with the complexity involved in launching an application. What I would like to see is something quicker, and easier to navigate, but not as clunky as the old interface either.
Instead of left clicking the system try icon and automatically opening the app, I would like to see something similar to how the Steam system try icon works. You click it and a small compact menu opens up showing the last 4 games you launched. In the case of CC, it could have the last 4 applications you launched, and then hovering over the application produces a sub menu of x number of most recent documents for that application, clicking the application name and icon opens the application, clicking a document opens the application and the document, something like the attached screenshot, of course since I don't use a Mac, this is a Windows based approach, not sure if it could work the same way on Mac.
Double clicking the icon would then open the larger app which would provide access to the account and all of the other features.
