    One word...

    Activation. Ugh.

    Activation was only for PC users, did this change for Mac users?

    Adobe apparently focused their activation efforts on CS2 instead of having a mid-cycle change (on versions 1.0-1.3).

    "Adobe releases Adobe Creative Suite 2"
    "Adobe today announced Adobe Creative Suite 2, …"
    "Adobe Creative Suite 2 will ship in May in both Standard ($900) and Premium ($1200) editions."

    Why does MacNN always mix up "announce" and "release" in their titles? Unless I'm mistaken, release means the thing is available, which is clearly not the case here.

    My favorite line

    In the Macworld article on the activation in CS2, some Adobe PR wonk says that when you purchase the software, you are licensing it from them, not owning it. I realize this is true for almost all software, but how many end users understand the difference between licensing and owning? Or how much of a leap will it be from "licensing" to "maintenance renewals" for the regular end user? I hope that day never comes.
