Microsoft Research does some amazing, science fiction-like stuff with computer graphics. ”

er yeah. Microsoft Research bought a copy of RealViz Stitcher and copied it. Amazing how quickly they brainwashed this guy….

1. Acrylic is not a “Photoshop Assassin”. They aren’t even the same type of tools. Sure, there’s functionality overlap but they are for distinctively different purposes. Painter, Deep Paint and Photoshop all live together nicely and I’m sure Acrylic will eventually be a nice addition to the toolbox too.

2. Microsoft isn’t well regarded in the mac-heavy graphics community (even PC graphic artists like me are frustrated with Microsoft products), and from the look of the beta, I don’t think they’re ready for a run at Photoshop. The Photoshop Assissin headline smacks of astroturf.

3. Is anyone who USES (I mean REALLY uses Photoshop, not dabblers) going to stop using Photoshop any time soon? No. Adobe has been pretty good at upgrading Photoshop, has good support overall and is well regarded for nice code. Same can’t be said for Microsoft products.

I’m sorry they will lose their favorite cash cow, but let’s be frank – it is terribly overpriced because until now there was no real competition.
