Business/IT/Government news aggregator site recommends Creative Suite 2; cites power, new features, integration

If you’ve got someone…nagging you for an up­grade to Adobe Systems’ Creative Suite 2, we rec­om­mend you listen

“If you’ve got some­one in your pro­duc­tion de­part­ment nag­ging you for an up­grade to Adobe Systems’ Creative Suite 2, we rec­om­mend you lis­ten,”, states the first sen­tence of a re­view by writer Patrick Marshall at FCW​.COM, a business/IT/Government news ag­gre­ga­tor site, the on­line pres­ence of the pe­ri­od­i­cal Federal Computer Weekly.

It de­liv­ers high praise for such new fea­tures as Photoshop’s Smart Objects and van­ish­ing points, InDesign’s Object Styles, the pow­er that Bridge pro­vides, and over­all tight in­te­gra­tion con­tribut­ing to over­all use­ful­ness and po­ten­tial­ly greater productivity.

The on­ly am­biva­lent marks giv­en were for GoLive, which, re­flect­ing what seems to be con­ven­tion­al wis­dom, was eval­u­at­ed as “[hav­ing] nev­er been an in­dus­try leader, and in our view, it is not like­ly to be seen as one now.” Adobe is be­ing giv­en cred­it for im­prov­ing GoLive as well, how­ev­er, with VisualCSS and au­to­mat­ic con­ver­sion of im­port­ed files to Smart Objects.

It is pos­i­tive press for Adobe which high­lights the in­roads in­to Quark dom­i­nance which Adobe seems to con­tin­ue to make while the world waits for Quark to re­lease XPress 7. 

For Quark, the clock is ticking.
