I wanted to try the new abobe golive cs2 and I thought it was ok. However I found the interface difficult to interact with, and seems to be more complecated to use. Also seems to hard to find thing’s that I wanted to get to. Though there is one thing I liked about golive cs2 is that it has more predefined style, templates than in dreamweaver. Speaking of dreamweaver I just hope that adobe doesn’t change the interface of macromedia products after the merger is complete.
Which in it self could be good or bad about the merger between Adobe and Macromedia. There is a lot of good software development coming out of Macromedia, and I hope they (adobe) would still deliver the same kind of quality of software after the merger is completed. As a user of Macromedia software like dreamweaver just hope things would improve lackluster parts of dreamweaver at some point.
I recently read that Adobe is buying out Macromedia for US$ 3.4Billion in a stock deal. Its seems that the only really good products that Adobe have are Photoshop, InDesign, and Acrobat. Their other products are O.K. and all but it just seems that this ‘merger’ or ‘buyout’ just seems wrong to me. Don’t know why but it does.
I just hope that products from Macromedia don’t get discontinued. Knowing my luck, Macromedia product more than likely would disapper altogether after a period of time after the buyout. I just hope that I’m wrong about Macromedia products disappering after awhile.
Plus, I use Macromedia Dreamweaver, along with the suite of software I use to maintain my site. Dreamweaver is one of the best html editors out there along with BBEdit.
In the end… this just bites big time.
