GoLive is almost dead. a history of Golive.

Yesterday Adobe CS3 was announced. GoLive was nowhere to be found. I’ve been a GoLive user since 1999. This very site was designed with GoLive. My brother was a big GoLive fan dating back to 1998. However, I spent many a numerous nights fighting with GoLive’s component feature. Stupid thing was so buggy.

UPDATE: 3/29/06
With the release of CS3, I thought Adobe killed GoLive. However, JB brought to my attention that GoLive 9 will be released in Spring 2007. It’s simply not a part of CS3.

GoLive isn’t dead, but it’s good as dead now. GoLive went into a coma when Adobe bought Macromedia. Now that Dreamweaver is in CS3 and GoLive isn’t, I’d say that Adobe has moved GoLive out of the hospital and into the middle of an abandoned desert. The only thing running GoLive’s life support is an old car battery. It’s only a matter of time now.

Wow. I suspected this would happen. However, I am a Dreamweaver user, so I’m just glad that GoLive got the boot instead. What will you do now, moose? Learn Dreamweaver? Luckily it’s very user-friendly. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I got CS3 on my computer at work today. No GoLive there, but it does include Dreamweaver CS3, Fireworks CS3, and Flash CS3. So far I’ve used Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and Dreamweaver. They all work great. And no backward compatibility issues, like there were between CS and CS2.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
