How does Studio 8 fit into Macromedia's enterprise play?

oscar trelles 08/09/05 08:48:56 AM EDT

For many of us, the idea of Flash as a viable development platform for RIAs has been a reality for some time. Macromedia has proved again that they listen to the community Built around the strengths of the Flash Player, Macromedia has built a universe of development tools, server-side technologies, solutions and partnerships that affect directly the way we do business.

StockPrice 08/09/05 07:17:46 AM EDT

Macromedia had an earnings call last month, but longer-term guidance was limited to products *other* than Studio 8. If Studio 8 sales in this final quarter (and some in next) are strong expect a very positive reaction.

So if I live in Hong Kong, I will be able to get a physical copy of this? I know we live in a digital age, but it is kinda nice too when there is a Special Edition like this, to hold in in one's hands. Almost like a "Collector's Edition" for Macromedia fans, before these amazing products move on to their new life as part of the even more amazing Adobe toolset.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated.
