We all know what happens when they both have keynotes addresses. The power of the hardware and software unite. Hopefully we should see new G4 Towers before this show.

It's about time. I remember in January when they released the dual gig, it was just there one day at Apples site, no big hoorah. It was like they knew they were just squeaking along for pro users. But now if Schiller and other Apple execs. are slated to present Apples plans for the future of pro users.... You know they are going to have some hardware to back 'em up! At least you hope....:eek:

Hopefully Adobe is going to talk about a new version of Illustrator that's actually faster than using a chisel and stone tablet. :rolleyes:

I would love to see a major announcement that involves InDesgin, and apple's support of that product. Quark is the only piece of software I use, that forces me to launch classic, and that is starting to get old.

A few weeks ago my line of work (I am a designer), provided me the misfortune of a sit down meeting with some quark representatives. They wanted to come in and boast about the new features in 5.0 So after listening to them for an hour, they looked to us for questions. Needless to say that first thing I asked them about, was their timetable for releasing a OSX native version. Here is where it gets sad... They do not see anything on the horizon before the second quarter of next year. They also said they could not move forward because of all the problems that apple was having with OSX??? They said they wanted to wait until they ironed everything out before they moved forward with an OSX version.

The best part was they said they would have one of the core people get in touch with me, to talk about other questions I had, in regards to the software itself... That was 4 weeks ago, and I have not heard a peep from them.

Sorry for dragging that out, but I just wanted to share a little first hand info I had gotten about some pending software.

Indesign 2 in OSX runs pretty sweet..... everyone I know that use to use Quark, has now switched over to Indesign....... and they're all pretty chuffed with it... as am I when I actually do print work.......

I have InDesign, and enjoy it almost as much as I do my other Adobe apps. (I also relish the fact that it is OSX native) However as much as I try, I can not get my entire company to switch over. They feel it would be too difficult to train the entire company on a new piece of software. Hence the fact that they will not move away from Quark.

My feeling is that if you use other Adobe products, the learning curve for InDesign is so minimal. The power and ease of InDesign is fantastic.

Than again maybe I just spend too much time behind my keyboard. lol:D
