Master And Collector

Adobe has just announced Creative Suite 5.5 and it looks like their subscription program has gone global and now also includes the other suites rather than being limited to Design Premium (when what I wanted all along was Web Premium, since I don't exactly do a whole lot of DTP work).

I could actually get their entire Master Collection and not really have it cost me any more - I need a copy of Contribute to test integration with Minx, and the cost of buying that outright equals the difference in subscription costs for the first 12 months.  Or I could drop InDesign which I have never used once and save myself fifty bucks a month.

Only it's not actually shipping yet, and you can't order the same subscription under CS5 and wait for the upgrade to ship out to you. 

I also wonder if it comes with a new icon set because after the clean style of CS3 and 4 the icons for 5 were hideous.  I actually went through and changed them all on my computer back to the CS4 icons because I couldn't stand looking at them.

Probably not.

1 I don't mind the CS5 icons all that much. Eventually I stop even noticing them to the point that when you mentioned them I had to look over to my Dock because I couldn't recall them without looking!

The incredibly weird graphic of the splash screen is another story. Every time I launch a CS5 application I try to look away until it is fully launched so I don't have to look at that… whatever it is thing.
