A bit ago I wanted to know just how many products Adobe sells. I knew about Acrobat, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver, Flash, Premiere and a few others, but I soon found out they have some awesome sound editing software as well (Soundbooth). So I went to their official website (which wasn’t exactly hard to find being one of the few websites with PR 10) and to the products page (which, guess what, is PR 10 as well).
How many can they have? 7? 8? Well, that was pretty much the moment when it struck me:
No, I’m not kidding. That’s exactly how many they have (and you can even download a free trial for each).
Of course, there are multiple versions for applications pretty much about the same technology, for example: Flash CS3 Professional, Flash Lite, Flash Media Encoder, Flash Media Server 2.0, Flash Player 9, Flash Player for Pocket PC, Flash Player SDK, FlashPaper 2, Flash Remoting MX (and as you can see some are free), but they are different products nonetheless.
And what’s best about this, pretty much all Adobe products have a similar (very good designed) interface and work seamlessly together. Oh, and yeah, Soundbooth is simply awesome 😉

Some of their products are actually those of Macromedia, so they got a lot of “freebies” from that merger.
Dreamweaver, Fireworks and maybe others have a old interface. No change with CS3.. sucks
One of the most valuable assets of an company is their product line. These items are far from being Freebies. In Fact, the major reason Adobe purchased Macromedia was for their product line. Doing it this way eliminates R&D, marketing & selling a new line, and especially, time-to-market. Believe, Adobe still paid dearly for the company and/or product line.
