I think its Layback Bear, not lady bear.

I doubt they'd ever rename themselves, the name is too well established.


Very interesting to see what the result of this will be.

I think the security should improve. Combine Microsoft and Adobe with MSE should improve security. One downloaded security update from Microsoft and you get it for Adobe also, should work better.

I think Microsoft would just integrate adobe flash with silverlight and agreeing with Layback Bear a security update monthly through WU would be better than quarterly through adobe

PS: lets not forget about Adobe Reader (another niche in the market)

If Adobe and Microsoft do decide to create some kind of partnership. What will happen to silverlight?

I'm certain they will keep it alive since it is there own project.

I'd love to see updates for things such as Photoshop, Fireworks, Flash, Reader via Windows Update.

Microsoft will most likely either cease development on it or combine it with Adobe Flash. Either way, Adobe Flash will most likely become the dominant software of the two.

I coud already tell Microsoft was favoring Adobe Flash when they said they wouldn't make Silverlight x64. Microsoft is one of the biggest creators of 64-bit software - why would they hold back from Silverlight x64? When Adobe released Flash x64 on the same day as IE9, I knew that Microsoft and Adobe HAD to be having a secret alliance.

I didn't think that far ahead but that's a good vision Klaw117. Makes seance now that you mentioned it. My understanding is this buy out will cover all Adobe products. There is no doubt in my mind the brains behind Adobe Flash and Silverlight will put there heads together and come up with something good. How about SilverFlash.
Microsoft and Adobe, Intel and McAfee, AMD and ?????.
