    as stated adobe bought out macromedia
    "Adobe Systems Incorporated has announced a definitive agreement to acquire Macromedia in an all-stock transaction valued at approximately US$3.4 billion. The companies plan to meet a wider set of customer needs and have a significantly greater opportunity to grow into new markets, particularly in the mobile and enterprise segments."

    I just read this too. Wow, thats all I can say. Adobe and Macromedia are the two multimedia heavy weights in the industry. Hopefully this doesn't spell the end of innovation as an offshoot of the competition between the two.

    I am an avid user of both companies programs, and I am very interested in seeing what will happen with this.

    We can only cross our fingers and hope for some Linux products in the future, but who knows...

    Well, Adobe are likely to remove Fireworks and similar programs, because they have similar applications, however they are working on Linux-native versions of those of their programs, so don't be surprised if they start working on a native version of, say, Flash, as this is very widely used. Maybe Dreamweaver, too. I doubt Photoshop will be native in the nearest future, though.
