All is not lost…maybe

From John Nack’s “Adobe Snow Leopard FAQ

Surprised and disappointed that you haven’t tested it on CS3. It’s not exactly 5 releases previous is it?

[I found that really surprising, too, and I’ll try to get more info. I’d frankly be shocked if people at Adobe & Apple really hadn’t tested CS3 on 10.6. I *think* it’s just some corporate conservatism at work here, and Adobe doesn’t want to over-promise anything. As I say, though, I’ll try to find out more. –J.]

If only we knew for sure…I’m not ready to put down $500-600 for CS4 if CS5 is potentially out early next year.  Snow Leopard should arrive on Friday (Pre-ordered from Apple), might have a better answer by then.

Adobe Opens Up (Sort of)

leave a comment »

Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big Creative Suite fan and have been a dedicated user since CS2; but if it’s called the “Open-Source Media Framework” why is it based on Flash instead of something like the HTML5 video element? (Which is almost guaranteed to be on all browsers and platforms soon after the standard is finalized)  I’ll admit, it’s a good idea with a lot of potential, but just maybe Adobe could take a lesson from the Linux community and instead position the project as a way to add to the Internet, instead of relying on a platform-specific solution.  Locking web developers into a single platform is NOT the way to go.
