First time poster here. :) I hope this is the right subforum to post this question.

I just recently bought a new mac, after having owned an EMac for seven years. I have some old software on my old computer, including GoLive 6.0, which I use to manage, design and maintain my website from.

I haven't had a chance to move everything on the new mac yet; will Adobe GoLive 6.0 work on 10.5.6?

I know Adobe has discontinued GoLive for Dreamweaver, I haven't been acquainted with Dreamweaver yet, is the transition going to take a lot more learning, or is there not much of a learning curve for GoLive users?

Can I buy the Dreamweaver upgrade if I have GoLive 6.0, or will I need to shell out the big bucks for the full license?

Thanks in advance!

GoLive 8 (CS2) will run on Leopard, and really is the last decent version of GoLive.

I still use 8 sometimes because I like they way they set up their site management features and FTP. I basically just use it in code view, and avoid layout view. The layout view tends to have a habit of changing some of your code. There were some nice features in that application though and I really like the interface. I still prefer it to Dreamweaver (if I was choosing) even though it's an aging program.

GoLive 9 is a complete disaster. I gave it a try and I swear they must have developed that version just to drive people over to Dreamweaver. It was hardly even a complete program. Everything you will read about that program on review forums is completely correct.

The bottom line is even 8 won't work forever though. I'd recommend doing what I am doing, and work on transitioning over to something like Coda. Or make the jump to Dreamweaver. While GoLive and Dreamweaver have obvious similarities, Dreamweaver to me is like a massively bloated version of GoLive. So I personally find applications like Coda closer to GoLive. But if you need the WYSIWYG layout option, you may need to look into Dreamweaver.

Thanks guys. Yeah, I'm more of a WYSIWYG guy so I may just make a jump to Dreamweaver then. For now though I'll stick with GoLive and upgrade to Adobe GoLive 8.

I never found the WYSIWYG layout in Dreamweaver to be easy to use or accurate. GoLive 6 was really great back in the day :)
