Features, Office Adobe may launch its own office-application suite, taking it into direct competition with Microsoft. In an interview, Mike Downey, group manager for platform evangelism at Adobe, said that, although he could not reveal any plans at the moment, the possibility should not be dismissed.

Adobe should focus on unifying the user-interface in its Creative suite (it looks a disheveled inconsistent mess) and work on taking all the bloat.

CS3 is in dire need of a consistent and predictable user-interface with consistent keyboard shortcuts across the applications. That's step number one. After that the need to trim the fat. The entire thing is way too resource-intensive and taxing.

The last thing they need to do is take on a whole other beast.
