Adobe Creative Suite 3

Did I, or did I not write about the new icons of Adobe's Creative Suite 3? I did not. But recently the news are talking about the Suite of the suites.

So I visited the Homepage of Adobe. They have a brilliant (Flash) Image Site for the Creative Suite and its different packages. You can somewhat try the new programmes. But it is more of a game than a real demo. I like the Rubik's cube thing, in which they present the content of the package. Since I was a kid, I am fascinated by this cube.
They kicked GoLive and welcomed Dreamweaver, they forgot about FreeHand and kept Illustrator. I tend to say that I know FreeHand better than Illustrator, because that is the application we learned at school. I hardly ever use Illustrator because I am all but a designer! I am more the InDesign/Acrobat person. Photoshop just for basic use. I once made a chair full and did other retouching things, which was hard, because I never did anything like that before and it was a major client for the company, at which I worked then. I do not know much about other stuff from the Adobe Macromedia mixture, because I am not using programmes for video editing and such.
But I did write about Kuler and this thing is somewhat integrated in Illustrator (at least the functionality). I did not see it myself, I just read it somewhere.
AND! The big yes! They did it! They finally went Universal! (Some programmes are only running on Mac machines with Intel processor. But it „only“ affects video post production programmes.)
