    Good to see Adobe Acrobat 3D but still no signs of 3Ds Max 8. The hardware reviews are decreasing with each issue.

    Best cd contents I have seen in a last few months. And magazine contents too seem good. I might just buy it this time.
    A lot more coverage to linux this time! Though I don't need any of them but still it will be great for many others.

    Re: digit software archive

    A (hopefully) less frustrating search engine, even more search criteria (freeware/shareware, individual categories, month and year), an install button so you can just insert the appropriate cd and install the software from the archive itself.

    There might be more, but I'm too bored to check right now.

    I don't understand what's the need to provide both Adobe Acrobat 3D and Adobe Acrobat Professional. The 3D version has all the features of the pro version plus some added features. Check it out yourself:
