'Significant speed gains' for CS3 on Leopard

updated 10:10 am EDT, Wed March 21, 2007

Leopard speeds up CS3

Adobe has announced that its new CS3 pro software -- which is due to launch next week in New York City -- offers "significant performance gains" when running under Apple's Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard -- which at least one industry analyst expects to ship in mid-April. Adobe's forthcoming release of Creative Suite 3 is expected to bolster Intel-based Mac sales due to pent up demand from professional users waiting to purchase new Apple hardware until a native version of Photoshop surfaces. CRN noted in early March that Adobe and Apple had finally fixed a "Tiger Pause" issue that would cause the professional imaging software to freeze for up to several seconds every half a minute, and today cited "significant performance gains" as claimed by Adobe for CS3 on Intel-based Macs. Adobe has said its latest professional software will run smoothly on both Mac OS X Tiger and the as yet unreleased Mac OS X Leopard.

    Get your story straight

    The Leopard/CS3 article says:

    "But between the current OS that's shipping and the next OS, it's unlikely that there will be significant advantages [for CS3] because the next OS is not yet released. "

    How MacNN got from that statement to "Leopard Brings CS3 significant speed gains" is beyond me.

    Read the article, folks!

    If you took some time to read the article thoroughly, you would have found the following:

    Reluctant as Narayen was to upstage Apple's official Leopard announcement, whenever it happens, Adobe has been sending out word to the development community that there will be at least some specific, measurable performance boosts.

    Now, this text was just a paragraph below the quote described in your messages.

    If I were to nitpick, the only thing I could hold on to would be that MacNN reported that it Adobe had announced that CS3 will have better performance under Leopard. The article they are referring to says (as quoted two paragraphs above), that Adobe has quietly notified developers (not the press!) about measurable performance improvements.

    Again, folks, please read through before laughing out loud...!

    LOL!

    The article says "Adobe Sees 'Significant Performance Gains' For CS3 On Intel-Macs"

    The paragraph you quote says "specific and measurable". A far cry from "significant."

    The headline was changed, swapping Intel-Macs with Leopard, changing the intended meaning of the story - significantly.

    The macnn author quote-mined the story and changed the headline, altering the meaning of the original story to something else.

    LOL!

    read the article, vasic!

    The MacNN article says that Adobe ANNOUNCED, as in officially proclaimed, that Leopard will boost CS3 performance. In fact, as is clear if you read the linked article, Adobe is very clear that they are making no such announcement at all.

    The passage you cite specifically cited an unofficial post on an Adobe hosted web forum. That qualifies as rumor. Now the rumor may well be true - I would be perfectly happy if it is - but to claim that Adobe has officially announced this, as MacNN does, is complete fiction.
