      Is a decent web app development platform/scripting language (CFML) if you are into the pure Adobe developer thingy.

      But why anyone expects to use this to generate power is beyond me.

        I can't think of a profession more likely to lead to suicide.  Hell, I'm just an end-user, and that shit makes me need to hide the sharp objects.

        Democracy is a habit, not a circumstance.

          Earns her bling mainly using Adobe CS (10+ years of hair pulling/talking to herself).

          I'm pretty proficient with PS and developed a couple of sites with Dreamweaver back in the Macromedia era, but WordPress is more my speed now.

          Actually, the last 2 releases of CS have improved a lot (pretty crash-proof these days), but getting to professional proficiency is not an investment I'm going to make at this point or ever.
