And Adobe upgrade is well worth it.
To me they are automatic. I'm not thinking about which adobe programs I'm
going to upgrade and which not. These people do not sit and their hands and
rest on their laurels during the rest of the year. They are applying all
kinds of man power into their programs. Certainly Photoshop. InDesign.
Illustrator. And now I have flash and fireworks as part of the suite I'm
involved in.

Adobe InDesign CS4
Adobe Photoshop CS4 Extended
Adobe Illustrator CS4
Adobe Flash CS4 Professional
Adobe Dreamweaver CS4
Adobe Fireworks CS4
Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro
Adobe Bridge CS4, which offers direct access to Adobe Version Cue CS4 and
Adobe Device Central CS4

My house is made of Adobe.

I have to upgrade my Lightroom 1 to 3. Not sure if I can get the upgrade not
having gotten 2.
