Macworld 2010

Thanks to any of you who attended our discussion today at Macworld 2010. Its always great to see customers face-to-face, even on such a trying topic as deployment and provisioning. The presentation was short and we had a lot of good questions or requests come our way.
Also I’d like to thank a customer of ours, John Welch, for helping to arrange this presentation at Macworld.
Updated (Feb 18, 2010): A few people asked for more details about what happened at Macworld 2010. In short:
The target audience was those individuals who deploy Adobe Creative Suite software for others. That’s generally system administrators for volume deployments; but, includes a handful of others such as OEM distributors or those who make tools such as InstaDMG. We discussed the history of deployment and licensing issues with Adobe Creative Suite and our plans for the immediate future.
The crowd asked some tough questions and provided really good feedback to us. Although we cannot solve every issue folks raised quickly, we do believe we’re addressing the most pressing issues first.
Please find attached the slide presentation used at Macworld 2010.

    I really want to thank you folks for being there at Macworld up on stage. It was a brave thing to do and I am really happy with what I saw a the presentation. I had given up a while after this blog started, but am back to reading it starting today.
    I did ask a question during the Q&A period about installing to a volume other than the boot volume (in the guise of InstaDMG). I had intended on making myself available to you, and more importantly making sure that you had the contact information for a couple of people at Adobe who use InstaDMG that could be resources for you in this area. I encouraged one of the Adobe people who was at the session and uses InstaDMG to give you his contact infor. My email should also be available to you, attached to this post, and as luck would have it the Adobe buildings in San Jose are on my way home from work, so if you need someone to talk about this, I would be happy to oblige.

    Thanks, Karl. I’ve gathered your email from this comment and sent it to our product manager (Gwyn, who was also there.)

    When I originally commented at I clicked the – Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and today each time a new feedback is added in at Macworld 2010 Adobe Installation and Licensing web site, I receive few emails utilizing the similar comment. Perhaps there is by any means it is possible to eliminate myself from that program? Thanks!!
