Posted by Jesse Easley Categories: Corporate News

Macromedia LogoAdobe has announced that they will be acquiring Macromedia by purchasing all of their stock for $3.4 billion.  Adobe and Macromedia are two of the industries leading companies for creative software.  By combining the two companies, Adobe wants to help businesses communicate more efficiently and create titles that will enhance the creative software industry. “This is not a consolidation play. This is all about growth,” said Bruce Chizen, Adobe’s chief executive. “We’re doing this because we believe the combined offerings will be even more compelling to our customers given the challenges they’re going to face in trying to communicate information in this very complex environment.”

Just another BS monopoly that uses other words to confuse the public in it being otherwise. Reminds me of what MS is like.

it is going to be horrible for the industry… with their only competition being my beloved Corel, the features are going to flounder.

Same thing as Micro$h*t did… it got the market, then left its product (WinXP) to flounder… 6 years old?!?!?
