I can't believe this :

http://www.adobe.com...macromedia.html

Adobe is buying Macromedia and eliminating the only serious competition for their products ! Whatever is going to be the future of the Dreamweaver MX Suite ?!!

Holy crap !! WTF ?!!!

OMFG!

Adobe is taking over completely, NOT GOOD, not that I don't like Adobe, Photoshop is excellent, but monopolizing a market like this is not good.

That's precisely why I used the subheading : Not an April fool joke !!

Can't believe it myself, but it's true enough - it's all over the net now - I've seen it on at least 7 sites in the first hour after the news broke :(

LOL! (Laughing Really Loud!)

I knew this was going to happen! Elimination of the competition! With 3.4 Billion! Who wouldn't take the jump for that amount in these economical unstable times?

Oh well! Dangit! I was hoping someone would use the FLASH feature to do something totally phenonminal/unorthodox to "WOW" the world digitally and virutally with!

You Go Adobe!!!

Hmm. Sounds like a nice opportunity to join Adobe and get some employment with them. I just registered at their site, and signed up, and provided a resume' submittal for any jobs that match my profile, work, occupational/career and job experience, and expertise!

You're Never Too Old To Apply For Financial Occupational Skills! :yes:

Wow. Came to a shock for me. I just hope that the Macromedia people continue to work on things as they were normally before Adobe bought them out. I really really hope its still going to be the same programs, with updates like we are all used to.

...why is everyone so surprised?...we all saw it coming....this business strategy have been in the tube for awhile now it's just that none of the side bothered to carry it out...and now they did. I believe that after the CS2 Suit, Macromedia product and Adobe product will start to intergrade...

This sucks balls. It's so gay, if I could do anything about it I sure as hell would, seriously Macromedia > Adobe even though I use both.
