CS5 11.4.909 (Feb 6, 2011)
As a long-time Abobe user -14 years-, the 2-day timeouts on evals has me and other developers migrating to the open source market. Prices have soared, and new major releases are too frequent to justify the cost anymore in this economic atmosphere.
1.6 (May 2, 2008)
A superior software application. It does a superb job of balancing existing memory and hardware, as it installs. The menus are clear and easy to follow for a first-time user. Far superior to Virtual PC in its relevancy to current operating systems, and usefulness for multiple operating systems running concurrently in a test, training, or demo environment. Well done.
2.3.0 (Jan 17, 2007)
Simple, intuitive and clean. Runs quickly and has a simple fix it path.
The section on deciding which startup programs to not use, is not very clear. I ended up choosing the wrong things to not have at startup time, and the things I didn't want to continue have in the startup path. It needs a clear description to 'check the things you want to have included in startup.'
2.13 Build 1075 Beta (Dec 11, 2005)
tested it with a sizable graphic on the astronomy pic of the day website.
Without it: 8.2 seconds
With it: 9.1 seconds
Unless there is something I missed, it makes XP slower on the internet.

Great potential, poor ease of development, poor recognizability. I did a poll with a development class I teach, and only 1 out of 35 students knew what Silverlight was. Some of the results of apps look like they can outpace Flash for bandwith, and eventually save developer time, but the developer UI's are poorly documented, difficult to figure out, are poor in workflow and speed of development. Perhaps in another 2-3 years.

Ask Microsoft and Apple: Would you consider a standard programming language created by an outside source that the entire industry can be unified by and use, and that would simplify and truly let the industry speed up the creation and development of new technology?

No referrals are available at this time. Sorry. The service is improving, and has very limited content so far. It has promise though, if you have a slightly better than average broadband connection.

I think I'm aware of a non-standard company that ended up doing pretty fair: Apple. Heard of them? If the population likes it enough, they'll do just fine. Try not to worry too much. ;)
