Adobe’s launch of Creative Suite 3 got a lot of static from those watching, but it wasn’t Adobe’s fault.
Imagine all of the planning that Adobe must have done prior to the largest launch of new software products in its history yesterday. (You can't begin to imagine how long it took to write and debug the 80 million lines of code that Adobe claims to have written for the entire treasure trove of programs in its new Creative Suite 3 family.) Then picture the hours of rehearsal and preparation that must have occurred on site involving hundreds of employees and support staff, plus the extra networking challenges faced by hosting the entire event live on the web before thousands of Adobe fans and journalists around the world. What could go possibly go wrong?
