Don't use past tense[edit]

I already wrote this comment on another article about the use of past tense and repeat it here because I noticed the same mistake:

"Adobe GoLive was a WYSIWYG HTML editor"

No, it is. The software is discontinued, but still usable and existing. Don't use past tense in articles for soft- and hardware, unless the functionality is completely broken because it needs access to a defunct website or similar. Unlike humans, software can't die and there are people out there who still use old versions. Formicula (talk) 10:23, 5 January 2014 (UTC)

Doubt on "In place of GoLive, Adobe will bundle Macromedia Dreamweaver"...[edit]

Adobe didn't announce what it would give up GoLive. With a different workflow, GoLive excels Dreamweaver in a lot of ways, most significantly its integration with other Creative Suite applications.

There is still speculations on whether GoLive or Dreamweaver will be given up. They may largely coexist and serve different purpose in the foreseeable future.

I agree. I have been using both software since 1999 and since 2001 been using GoLive only, notwithstanding the new feartures offered by Dreamwevaer MX. GoLive has more features that enhances the look and feel of the webpage. In addition, the CSS feature of GoLive is very impressive.

- Actually, Adobe did replace GoLive with Dreamweaver CS3 (now considered an Adobe product, after merging with Macromedia.) This was do to the fact that web designers have long adopted Dreamweaver as the industry standard, and GoLive had never achieved much penetration in the market.

--What needs to be clarified here is that when Adobe acquired GoLive, it did not also own Dreamweaver: Dreamweaver was a Macromedia product and Adobe did not acquire Macromedia until 2005. So it isn't that Adobe had always had these 2 similar products, it's that Adobe came to have these similar products at the point of the acquisition of Macromedia.

Version history[edit]

If someone could add a version history (release dates), I'd be most grateful. 217.85.169.131 07:51, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

Company history[edit]

I do not remember if there ever was a gonet, Inc.. gonet communications GmbH was founded in Feb 1996 in Hamburg, Germany. A year later we had to change our name to GoLive Systems GmbH. If I remember correctly this was the time when GoLive Inc. was founded in Menlo Park, CA. mprove (talk) 15:00, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
