Software buying frenzy

A few days ago I pre-ordered a copy of Tiger, due out on 29 April, and last night I took the plunge and pre-ordered Adobe Creative Suite 2. I’ve ordered the Standard addition, as I have no need for GoLive and Acrobat (included in the Premium Suite).

I’m looking forward to the new tools in Illustrator CS2, as well as extra features of the suite like Version Cue. This looks like it could be really handy when a client asks me to supply different colour versions for them to choose from. I have a terrible habit of saving colour changes over older versions, and having to re-apply the approved colours by picking them off raster samples of the variations.

Fingers crossed that CS2 will ship earlier rather than later, as my Illustrator CS tryout version expired in 14 days, and I don’t want to have to go back to version 10. CS has too many nice features that I’ll miss.

I shall bask happily in the cosy feeling that comes with owning legit software.
