Anoying "save as a copy" process that was never asked for and takes longer to save a file

Is there a particular reason that Adobe have changed the simple "save as" so that we now need to to hit a "save a copy" button each and every time we  save out a file as a jpeg or different format? Other softwares seems to present a time honoured save as dialogue that gets the job done. Adobe for some reason have had to inject extra steps in to something very basic. They could have spent the time in to actually developing their software offering Linux support and improving 32bit support but noooooo they screwed up the save as option.....Money well spent Adobe.....

Yes there was a reason (Apple) and you can use a preference to get back the legacy behavior:

Thanks for your help, that's better!

 

I find  the idea that they screwed up the saving process for apple laughable when so many other softwarecompanies are not doing the same. Sometime Adobe's choices make me laugh out loud considering that they probably have enough budget for amazing software development rather than this mediocre app dribble they pump in to each version.

But they didn't screw anything up! You simply need to learn how to revert to a Legacy save. 

But if you hate Adobe software so much, maybe you should find an alternative.

oh yeah I forgot, sorry, everything is perfect and every decision Adobe makes is infalible.....My mistake, Because obviously updates are worth the bother if users have to revert to legacy every time. Awesome.
