Dear World. Please take note of this short infomercial as it will help you understand what to say to someone when you are ordering software.
Part one - Software Product
The product name refers to the company that produces the software title you are interested. So when you say you would like to order Adobe or Microsoft, that does not help. Those are the companies that produce the products. Example Photoshop is an Adobe Product.
Part two - Software Versions
Versions tend to be numbers. Their main function is to let people know what the newest product is. This information can be helpful when you are ordering software, but mostly when you are looking for previous version of a software title.
This can be confusing when dealing with Adobe products who changed their numbering system by adding an abbreviation of the software title to the version. Example: CS5 (Creative Suite 5)
Part three - Software Title
This is the most important information to know when you are ordering software. This is the name of the product you want. Design Premium, Office, Windows, Snow Leopard.
As with the software version, Adobe also complicated this process when they released their Creative suite line of products. Example Creative Suite CS2 = Creative Suite Creative Suite 2. This was fixed recently by dropping one of the Creative Suites.
SO! To sum it all up:
Adobe (Product Name) Creative Suite 5 (Version Number) Web Premium (Software Title)
Adobe (Product Name) Web Premium (Software Title) CS5 (Version Number)
Microsoft (Product Name) Office Professional (Software Title) 2010 (Version Number)
