Adobe Drops GoLive for Dreamweaver

I've expected this for a while but Adobe made it public yesterday. Adobe has decided to drop GoLive. In an email yesterday Adobe stated that there would be no new development, sales of the product or support for Adobe GoLive.

In addition Adobe finally offered an upgrade price to move from GoLive to Dreamweaver. It is unfortunate, but I bought Dreamweaver at the end of March for $399 and now Adobe is offering it to me as a GoLive user for $199.

Since I have been using Dreamweaver, I like it. I am taking a class to learn the ins and outs of the program. I do like that it makes it very easy to add JavaScript and CSS and the code seems pretty clean. But I sure do wish that Adobe would have allowed me to buy it as a GoLive upgrade in March when I asked the supervisor why they would not allow GoLive users to upgrade at the upgrade price.

I have asked Adobe for a credit or at least a store credit (I bought it at Adobe.com) for training or a book, but realistically I doubt they will respond. So if you are a GoLive user, look for your $199 upgrade link in your email or call Adobe and get Dreamweaver while you can at this special low price.
