Adobe will soon be attaching their own acronym to the newest versions of Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive and InDesign. The new releases will get CS (Creative Suite), whacked on the end. At least CS makes some sort of sense I guess, not like Macromedia and the whole MX thing. What the fuck does that stand for? Does anyone know? Macromedia Xtreme? Making Xylophonics? Monkey Xex? Marketing Xuberence? And what is it now that it’s MX 2004?
Adobe have obviously overlooked the X factor while racking their brains. For instance, Macromedia Studio MX, Windows XP and Mac OSX all use X’s. Either that or they just wanted to make sense… Mac OSX does make sense, with whole X as the roman numeral for 10.
Adobe’s CS range will be shipping at the end of November.
