Accomplishing the Impossible

Standard

I hadn’t really thought about it much – until tonight – but Adobe accomplished the impossible with Creative Suite 3: It represents the first true offspring of the marriage of Adobe and Macromedia. Definitive Macromedia apps like Dreamweaver, Fireworks and Flash were rolled into the Adobe fold and are now being served up alongside apps like Photoshop, Illustrator, Acrobat, and InDesign. Keeping that in mind, it’s amazing there weren’t more problems with the release of CS3. That is all.

Are you sure this will work in my CDROM drive? So, umm, my Flash 8 Professional disk arrived via UPS today, and it look like somebody a) sat on my package; b) kicked my package; c) dropped something heavy on my package; d) …

Fortunately, a quick call to Macromedia Customer Service resolved my issue. I told them about the CD issue, and they’ve got a replacement on the way. I had a pretty good experience with them. Got through quickly. They handled my issue quickly and efficiently. Should have my replacement disk soon!
