That said, it’s nice to be this kind of nerd. It is especially nice when someone like Adobe comes along and releases a new version of the software we all use. Will it fix that issue I’ve always had with Flash? Can Photoshop make me any better at photography? Can it zoom to infinite resolution like they can on CSI? (Can you clean up those pixels for me?) Have they put a tabbed interface in something else now? Specifically, the answers to these questions are: Mostly yes, probably not, never in a million years, and yes of course.

- Flash CS4
- Photoshop CS4
- Illustrator CS4
- Dreamweaver CS4.
