Adobe Memory Usage, with no apps in use

See my Mac wish list.

Earlier today I wrote about macOS BloatWare.

Adobe Memory usage with no Adobe apps running

Now it’s Adobe’s turn to be spanked: I take a dim view of products using substantial memory when absolutely nothing is running.

These Adobe processes are just there running all the time even when no apps are in use, and they take up 132MB of real memory. On 4GB or 8GB machines, this is not a trivial consideration and if every vendor did this, pretty soon a GB or two of memory would be scarfed up to no useful purpose.

Adobe ought to have one bootstrap daemon using at most 10MB, one that can fork off all this overhead cruft when an app is actually in use. As shown, memory usage rises to justa bout doubles for these overhead processes when an Photoshop is in use—a huge amount for what is likely a very basic task.
