37sigs points points to an article where a fellow makes the statement: “What if Adobe said: New Photoshop CS3 with 80% less features?!â€¦In Photoshop I use 10% of the features, easily, maybe less.”
The problem of course is that Adobe isn’t in the business of making custom software for this fellow. He may only use 10% but perhaps I use a different 10%. If you cut 80% of the features from Photoshop you have Fireworks. I love Fireworks and use it all the time, but some people need more. Those people use Photoshop.
