Adobe announces Creative Suite 2

Adobe today announced Creative Suite 2 (CS2) and MacCentral has a lot of coverage. People are all up in arms about activation in CS2, with a bunch of posts in the forums about it. Macromedia is doing this now. Its just a fact of life people. Get over it.

There are first looks on Photoshop CS2, InDesign CS2, Illustrator CS2, GoLive CS2, and the new File Browser replacement Bridge.

Of all the applications, Photoshop CS2 and this new Bridge look to be the major reasons to upgrade to CS2. The upgrade price is nice too. It will cost me $349 to upgrade CS Standard to CS2 Standard. This is better then past Adobe "suite" upgrades which have gone for $499 to upgrade. I will upgrade to CS2, which ships in May.

I don't see us upgrading our 20 seat license at Student Publications though. I do not think the new features warrant that upgrade.

Now. what in the world is wrong with calling it Photoshop 9? It is fine if you want to call it CS2, because it is a suite, but just say it includes Photoshop 9, because it does.

On a related note: If you purchased Adobe CS Standard or Premium within the last three or so months I would call Adobe today and ask for a free upgrade. I bought the Adobe Design Suite just before CS hit. I got a free upgrade from it to CS Standard.
