Please create distinct sub-forums in each of your product support forums for each operating system.
ie.e MacOS, WIndows, Unix...
Without hesitation, I agree 100% with that sentiment.
But seeing that since last April 6 Adobe has merged some previously platform specific forums (Illustrator, InDesign) to the utter dismay and disgust of many of us, forgive me for not holding my breath.
Fortunately, the Photoshop and Bridge forums remain platform specific.
In addition, who knows whether the Jive adolescent midgets can even cope with the task of separating the merged forums.

Methinks we, the users, are the ones that care. Communicating directly with Adobe is mostly like talking to a brick wall these days.
The original post was about the forums and this was the correct place!
The so-called Wishform is for reporting bugs and requesting new features in applications.
Yeah, it's just the 'Dear Adobe' that struck a wrong note - the OP probably thinks someone other than more frustrated users is listening. And/or cares.
Different hosts are responsible for the different product forums. Some forums are setup the way they are for historical reasons. Some are setup the way they are since the hosts and users think there is no reason to separate them by OS since most issues for that product are platform ignostic. If you have a particular forum you wish to see organized differently, by all means state your case. I'm sure that the hosts and forum administration will listen. They may or may not make the change but they will listen.
