Adobe Creative Suite CS

Adobe Creative Suite (CS) is a software suite of graphic design, video editing, and web development applications developed by Adobe Systems. Each edition consists several Adobe applications, including Photoshop, Acrobat, InDesign, Premiere Pro or After Effects. Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator are the industry standard applications for many graphic design positions. CS6 is the last version of the Creative Suite; future versions of their creative software would only be available via their Adobe Creative Cloud subscription service.

What’s the first thing you install—or uninstall—on a new system?
The first thing I install on a new PC system (other than OS & drivers) is usually a tie between the Chrome browser and Blizzard's Battle.net client, closely followed by Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. On my Mac, I skip straight to Lightroom and Photoshop, since I'm happy with Safari and don't try to game much on that system (that's what the PC is for ;-)

As for uninstalling, usually nothing... My last PC was a custom build so there wasn't any junk on it and Macs are great about not having anything I don't want.

Yeah, definitely got to take care of all the OS and driver patches first! What do you do after all that?

I don't install PCs for a living, and only do that for select family members: myself, children, wife and mother in law.
Everybody gets Chrome, Office and Adobe Acrobat reader.
Then for each their tools of trade. This is the list of first installations as happened during the past year.

For me:
* Virtual box, Git, JDK, Python, Jetbrains IDE, curl, whois, dig, jq, notepad++, skype, mumble and Eve Online

For my mother in law:
* OE Classic

For my wife:
* Photoshop, Invision, Premiere

For my son:
* Minecraft, Netflix

For my daughter:
* Matlab, Netflix

As per the requirement I will prioritize the installation as OS, Office Applications etc... and if unnecessary applications other than system, driver files then will uninstall it...

Subject of the week | I'd never make it through my work day without this technology.

My design programs, obviously, and my phone because it's part of me. I actually feel like I'm missing a body part when I don't have my phone.

Flash: Good Bye and Good Riddance
Unlike yesterday's potentially overblown news about the demise of MS Paint—which was met with mixed feelings—I am quite happy to see the news of Adobe finally putting an end-date on support for Flash. It was a technology that was certainly helpful at solving the problem of online video and interactive games back in the early days, but its misuses (Flash-based site navigation, I'm looking at you!) performance inefficiencies, and security holes mean it's long past time to let it go.

I can certainly sympathize with anyone that still has Flash-based solutions they'll need to replace, though. Perhaps there'll be a nice market for developers to work on doing these conversions?

Looking at professional certifications? I've discovered that community colleges near me offer Adobe, Microsoft and CompTIA certification exams free of charge! You might find an academic testing center near you that does the same or offers a great discount. Considering these exams usually cost $150-200 when administered by private testing centers? Woot!
