Windows 7: Adobe CEO Denies Marriage with Microsoft

Adobe CEO Denies Marriage with Microsoft


After meeting in secret with his counterpart at Microsoft in the first half of October 2010, Adobe Chief Executive Officer Shantanu Narayen denied the possibility of a marriage with Microsoft, in an interview for FOX Business, via Seattle PI.

Following the face-to-face between Narayen and Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, the rumor mill went wild.

Speculation that the Redmond company was courting Adobe for a takeover emerged, causing the stock of Creative Suite’s makers to explode.

Following the meeting, both Microsoft and Adobe downplayed the event, with the software giant commenting extremely little on the topic.

Narayen now indicates that Microsoft will not be buying Adobe, and it also appears that a merger is out of the question.

“Clearly Adobe is at the center of the content revolution that you see happening. The amount of content that is being created for web, for video, mobile devices is just exploding. And you know, we are the people who make all that happen,” Narayen stated.

“And clearly we have significant partners in that space. Microsoft's one of those partners we work closely with. But, you know, we value our independence, and we continue to think that we just have tremendous opportunities ahead of us as a company,” he emphasized.

Personally i'm not in the favor of the same i.e., merger of Adobe & Adobe enjoys the Monopoly & dominates the Flash World that's make its product (applications,software) even better & will remain the same maintaining the quality,customer satisfaction.

If the money is right, shareholders of Adobe and Microsoft will make it happen. It sounds to me that Adobe wants more money and time to set up a few golden parachutes for some of the top people.
