Could this mean Apple has some new software in the pipeline that's threatening to them? (iWeb, iPhoto2, Photo Pro??) Otherwise why the snub? I'm askin...

If I were them, and Apple was going to introduce somehting that was threatening to me, I would have my ass there explaining why my product was better. Otherwise it would, IMHO, look like I was rolling over and giving up.
It might be more likely that they have nothing to talk about. All of Adobe's major apps are now X complient, and, to my knowledge, with the exception of Director, the same holds true for Macromedia. I doubt that Director has a large enough fan base to cause the disappointment that Photoshop caused before PS7 was released.
Does anyone remember Adobe and Macromedia's reaction to Final Cut Pro?

I would only really remember any significant reaction from Adobe since Apple purchased Final Cut from Macromedia.

Really? I must have missed that. When Macromedia owned it, was it called Final Cut, or did Apple rename it?

I believe it was.
MWNY without these two massive powers of the mac industry is not going to be the same and they know it. It's very unfortunate and a diss to their NY customers that they'll continue to have a booth at SF.
I understand it costs a hell of a lot of money to do the NYC show but they have done it in the past and they are a cornerstone of the event. It's very odd IMO that both backed out. I would have liked to see Adobe step up to the plate after Macromedia bailed out.
My biggest fear though is that others will follow <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />

Final Cut Pro was never a shipping product. It was always the "next big thing" from Premiere Developer Randy Ubillos
It's project name at Macromedia was "Key Grip" I remember talking to Macromedia Project Mngr about it and it was rumored to hit the street at $2999 or around there...the fact that Apple shipped it at $999 was amazing.
