You may have heard the news that last month, Adobe and Salesforce.com jointly announced Flash Builder for Force.com (which is a great idea by the way).

And it’s codenamed — are you ready for this? — Stratus.

Gosh that seems familiar… isn’t there already a product with that name? Why yes, it’s Status, Adobe’s RTMFP service.

You’d think that if someone were to introduce a product using Adobe’s tools, they could at least Google whether it had been taken.

Maybe next time they should use a codename generator ;)

    Joseph, what would you of called it / the codeName or the actual product?

    If you could reName any other adobe product what would it be?

    Will FlashCom server of old that is now FlashMedia Server (or is it something new now? #iDunno) become something new this year?

    Doesn’t matter. But I’d have ran all known Adobe codenames through Google first. Obviously a case where one doesn’t know what the other is doing; I just found it humorous that they happened to pick a name already used by Adobe, for an Adobe product add-in: what are the chances?

    > If you could reName any other adobe product what would it be?
    - Flash CS4 would be Flash CrashesALotWithAnInterfaceThatLooksLikeAToy
    - Flex Builder 3 would be Flex BuildsWayTooSlow
    - Photoshop would be Photoshop CS5 MX 2010 SP 2.5 Hotfix 4.5752321554

    No, seriously, the names are fine. I even like the name “Flash Builder”. Except “Flash Catalyst”: “Thermo” was a way cooler name. And AIR — saying Adobe AIR is like saying “Adobe Adobe Integrated Runtime”: doesn’t exactly sound right, does it?

    Actually, iDunno will be the new OSX version of FMS.

    LOL
