OS X Yosemite and Adobe CS 6

There aren’t many sources confirming the compatibility of the new OS X Yosemite and Adobe CS 6. So, I decided to confirm it.

I read a few comments on forums stating that Adobe CS 6 and OS X Yosemite are compatible without any issues, but there were many more comments of issues with CS 6 not running properly. The comments were primarily because people did not have Java updated. I thought, “That’s really minimal, and super easy to resolve—especially since Java is free!”

I decided to take the plunge, and update OS X from Mavericks to Yosemite. I wasn’t too worried after what I read, and also, Apple has a great track record of updates working flawlessly. It worked! Adobe CS 6 was still working after the upgrade!

The only other app I was concerned about was Suitcase Fusion 5 (SF 5). Extensis’ website said that Suitcase Fusion 6 is compatible with Yosemite, however, they never said that  SF 5 is compatible with Yosemite. One comment in a forum stated that Yosemite is basically Mavericks, but with a whole new look, and the added capability of making transitioning / communicating between mobile and desktop (and laptop) computers seamless. Also, Extensis makes money from software sales, so I figured that it would be in their best interest not to mention SF 5’s compatibility with Yosemite.

After upgrading to Yosemite, not only did Adobe CS 6 and Suitecase Fusion 5 still work, but it appears that Yosemite also gave me back 4 GB of space!  Yay for Apple!
