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

Cyborg Agent
I'm gonna buy this issue(after missing 3 issues). Atlast GNU/Linux has got some coverage. Some distros, some softwares and Fast Track too. This is great!


digit software archive

how about the digit Software Archive 2006 0.2 beta? what additional features does it include or what modifications have been made?


18 Till I Die............
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.

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.


OH!!! It seems Digit has come back again after a long holiday.

Keep this alive Digit and don't go on honeymoon again.

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:
