Microsoft buying Adobe? Call me highly skeptical

Quote:

The New York Times is reporting that the CEOs of Microsoft and Adobe recently met. Supposedly on their agenda: Apple.

I get that. That two of the vendors who’ve had problems getting their interactive media technologies approved for use on the iPad and the iPhone are chatting seems possible, if not probable. A Flash-on-Windows Phone 7 discussion? I could see it. Possible complaints to legal authorities launched in tandem? Sure, another plausible coffee-klatch topic….

But now I’m seeing folks leap to the conclusion that Microsoft’s CEO Steve Ballmer met with Adobe’s CEO Shantanu Narayen to talk about Microsoft buying Adobe (based on a passing mention that such an idea was on the Ballmer-Narayen “let’s team to beat Apple” agenda. There’s this paragraph in the New York Times’ report:
“Another person with knowledge of past talks between the two companies explained that Microsoft has courted Adobe several years ago with possible acquisition discussions. But the deal never moved past informal talks as Microsoft feared that United States Department of Justice would likely block the deal on antitrust grounds.”

Antitrust action is probably something that Microsoft and Adobe have already looked into.

Wow - I have never heard of Expression and I'm a graph design student, goes to show who runs the show

I am quite happy with the Creative Suites

Do you use Expression? If so - how is it?

Hmm, maybe they will be smart enough to realize that the bonjour service that comes with Adobe photo suite is wrecking havoc with Windows 7 internet connections and finally fix it once and for all.

And I'd also take silverlight over any Adobe flash player.

I have solved a lot of my problems by removing bonjour from my Windows 7 system. If I wanted Apple I would of bought a Apple.

They should combine Flash and SilverLight, to create the FlashLight! Ultimate marketing.
