Countdown To Adobe CS5----- Launch day set for first day of NAB!

I've been buzzing around looking for interesting NAB news (trying to avoid 3D buzz right now - more to come on that) And I ran across the Studio Daily Blog article by Scott Simmons. 

We all knew it was only a matter of time before Adobe delivered the next update to its suite of applications. The launch date has been announced: We can expect Adobe CS5 on Monday, April 12, at 8 am PT, 11 am ET. Astute observers will notice that that date is the first day the exhibit floor will open at NAB 2010. Coincidence? Obviously not. Adobe is going all out with this launch as they’ve also launched a website where you can keep track of all the buzz and even log in with your Adobe ID to get even more CS5 goodness.

It's not the whole article, you can read the rest and view the CS5 preview "HERE" on their blog. 
Adobe has set up a countdown to CS5, it's worth a look.
As far as money is concerned Adobe seems to be doing well enough. That couldn't be the fact that almost all of us use at least l of their products throughout our professional lives. 
In case you are interested in the read, I've included part of the first quarter financial results press release that came out this week.
