Adobe facts statistics

Here are the more interesting Adobe facts and statistics I was able to dig up recently. As always, I will be adding more and updating these periodically as I find new stuff. Be sure to check back regularly.

Adobe facts statisticsPlease note that some of these Adobe stats are easier to find than others, so some of these are based on news reports and not official company tallies. All stats are linked to their source unless it was sent to me directly from the company. No stat listed on DMR should be considered in making any type of investment decision. In other words: This is the best I can find, but I don't guarantee anything.
