Some statistics on Adobe

In the Forbes Asia June 16, 2008 issue I came across these interesting facts about Adobe (the makers of Photoshop and Flash).

  • According to Adobe, Flash Player is the most widely available software on Earth (Is it?)
  • For every 1000 users of free Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Acrobat Reader, there is a Web Programmer or Graphic Designer behind creating the content
  • 80% of Creative Professionals or 2.6 Million people use Adobe’s Creative Suite
  • Adobe has 1 Million developers using its products compared 4 Million Software developers using Microsoft .NET Tools
