Adobe-Macromedia COO says …
For those of us who are, shall we say, concerned about what may befall our favorite Macromedia programs in the hands of Adobe, this morning's blog hopping gives us fruitful information:
- Starting at Threadwatch's Om Malik – "I've been robbed" »
- Om Malik's blog post on blog scraping »
- Om commenter Amit Agarwal's blog detailing About.com's posting of his article without citation »
- Amit's post Macromedia & Outsourcing »
- the original Forbes interview of Shantanu Narayen, COO, Adobe Systems.
Quoting (yes, at last) from the Forbes article (I've bolded what I think is the all-important statement):
Shantanu Narayen: For the creative designer/developer customer, we want to offer the best of Dreamweaver, Flash and Photoshop. Creative Suite [a software design package combining various related image applications] has blown away our expectations because the Adobe platform is standardized and integrated with best-of-breed products. We will continue to provide more. For example, Web site designers can work with Photoshop and then switch over to Dreamweaver to create the site. We can make this all work seamlessly.
I guess we can breathe a sigh of relief.
<Added> See the comment here from Adobe's David Mendel. It looks like we can breathe easy.
Have your say ...
