The twice-yearly Macworld Expo may be the biggest event in the Macintosh world, but two key developers are taking a pass on next month's show in New York.
Macromedia and Adobe Systems will be absent from the show floor. The two large Mac developers have missed other recent shows, but not at the same time.
Macromedia skipped the San Francisco Macworld show in January; Adobe was in San Francisco but passed up going to last year's New York event, which Macromedia attended.
Beth Wickenhiser, a spokeswoman for Macworld producer IDG World Expo, confirmed Friday that "it's true they won't be attending this year. But there will be a lot of other great developers at the show."
Of course, the centerpiece of the show--Apple Computer CEO Steve Jobs' keynote speech on July 17--remains. And a number of big names will be joining Apple on the show floor, including Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, Corel and Canon.
