Although it is a slow process apparently, email notifications are starting to go out to our enterprise customers who have access to CS 5.5 through LWS this week. If you are unfamiliar with LWS, it is our Licensing Web Site for Adobe Volume Licensing (AVL) customers. It is also where order history, serials, and downloads of our electronic media reside. How about that name LWS though? Nothing says “relic of a bygone era” like a site with the name Web Site in it. Let’s just pretend the WS in LWS stands for Walking Shoes or Western Saddle. How about Worcestershire Sauce? I am fully aware that Licensing Worcestershire Sauce makes no sense, but I am somehow more okay with an absurd name than an overtly redundant one.
I just got word this morning that Adobe Application Manager Enterprise Edition (AAMEE) 2.0 has also made its way up to LWS as well! This is a whole week ahead of our scheduled release to the public website. How awesome is that? On the Scale of Awesomeness I would give it a 7 out of 10. Why not higher? Well I would give it a 9 of 10 if we were able to have AAMEE 2.0 available on our public DevNet site today as well, but we’ll have it up this time next week and I will post when this occurs with the link. How could it be a 10 out of 10 on the Scale of Awesomeness? This would involve simultaneous availability AND free candy. The free candy bit would bump it up. Don’t underestimate the power of free candy. They made a whole holiday based on it.
