So for those that have installed it, how's it run?
Stable? Fast? ...or is it as bad as CS4 supposedly was?

For the last couple of days, I've been watching the "What's New" videos over at creativelive.com. Very informative videos and it looks like there are some decent updates in this release.

in all honesty, cs4 was only "bad" early on. Adobe did fix the issues with a few patches.

and i havent had any showstoppers getting in the way of our projects after the initial baby kinks got sorted out.

Not to say i wont be holding off purchasing cs 5 until early adopters has had their hands on adobes latest offering for a while or the trial turns out to work flawlessly when i give it a go next week.

Can you turn off the brush tilting on the new 'painting' brushes?

Had a quick chance to prat about with it today, some genuinely nice features... Not keen on the new 'zoom' method, but I'm sure I'll adapt (in about 10 years). Although one thing is annoying me, when I use Alt + Spacebar to zoom out Windows makes multiple 'chime' noises like I've held a key down too long, anyone else getting this?

I get that in some other apps under Win7...though not all the time. Some of the Win7 glitches seem to be easily fixed by running in Vista compatibility mode

Holy s***, and this with an i7. How long did it take?
I can't even download it yet, cuz my UMTS conection is limited by 64K for the next 30 days...
But how is FX working with your video card? I know you have a GTX275.
Any performance improvement over CS4?

The content aware healing brush is absolutely amazing on certain things.

I've been using CS5 for ages now (I'm on the beta), and I can say that I've experienced a noticeable performance increase myself.

It was just at the beginning for some reason, it gave me a "estimated time remaining 20 minutes" thing but sped up after that thank god


Regarding Ps cs5, it is lightyears faster than cs4 ever was. Excellent release.
