So, count me as one who has bailed. I'll still use Flash 8.

I am trying to download a trial version of CS4 but the download keeps failing and restart does the same. I want to find out if CS4 will work on an AMD processor. I had to return CS3 after trying to install it for 3 days (most of which was talking to Indai) only to find out after multiple attempts at cleaning out and reinstalling numerous files and folders, that I does not work on AMD processors.

I'm trying to correlate this with what you wrote earlier, but I'm
guessing you meant to say, "I still do not use Adobe's Flash *CS4*," rather
than "I still do not use Adobe's Flash"?
I'm adding my voice regarding some of the issues I have regarding CS4. I've been happy with Photoshop CS4 today and I'm a pretty advanced user. However, Flash CS4 has given me some significant concerns and Flash is the reason I upgraded.
1. First and foremost is performance. I'm running a 2.5 Ghz Intel Macbook Pro 17" with 4 GB of RAM. My overall experience with Flash CS4 is really unpleasant. I'm creating animation in movies that run between 2 and 5 minutes long. When I select frames/keyframes/symbols/etc. I often have a wait time anywhere between .5 seconds and 3 seconds for the selection to take effect and the spinning beachball to go away.
The files I'm working with are not that big... 5000 frames on average. I admit that performance wasn't superb with CS3, but it was better than it is currently.
For what it's worth... I would almost not care about any other fixes, if you could just boost the overall performance of the app and improve the User's experience.
2. Crashes. The second item...flash almost NEVER crashed on me before... CS4 crashed on me a couple times a day now, minimally. Usually when I've accidentally hit f5 or f6 when a layer was selected. With the new keyframe animation functionality, it often will try to convert a whole layer into keyframes.... if it doesn't crash trying, it takes about 3-5 minutes to complete the process, and then another 1-3 minutes to "undo" the process.
I love the palettes and how I can customize my workspace... but with the delays to click items on screen I find I accidentally alter/change/click the wrong item waiting for a response from the app when I click items.
@Adobe, I hope you find this helpful in some way...I'll offer whatever I can (time, reviews, testing) that I can if it proves beneficial.
Looking forward to some awesome updates/patches!!
I have the same problems than Michelangelo and I'm on a PC.
I unfortunetly started a project on CS4 but from now on, I'm gonna stick with Flash 8 until a patch is released.
Here's my specs:
Windows XP SP3 32-bit
Pentium D 3.4GHz, 3.4Ghz
2 Gb RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX with 2 Samsung 920n monitors plugged in
Please do something about this software ASAP!
