After updating to High Sierra, I decided to take a look around to see what's new. Being a bit of a nerd, I ventured into System Information / Applications. Frankly, I'm appalled to discover the number of 32-Bit applications still around. This will become a problem and maybe sooner than one would hope, but I'm also concerned with the number of left-overs our dear friends at Adobe have failed to remove.

Take a look for yourself and discover multiple versions of most of their under-the-hood-helper-apps still lurking around. No wonder the Adobe Desktop App (or whatever they call it) is the weakest link when things go wrong. I experienced this weakness the other day when, for no explicable reason, Adobe refused to accept my Adobe ID and locked me out.

Its not only Adobe who are guilty, but many of my other photography related utilities, such as those from Epson, X-Rite and PhaseOne.
