If Microsoft bought Adobe, Apple stock will fall by about 20% minimum.

Or Flashlight.

I don't like the sound of this. Flash support on Linux is garbage already, and this will kill off whatever is left. The last thing we need is an even bigger corporation trying to rip us off.

+1!

And if you thought Adobe's software offerings were already bloated, wait until the magicians at MS add a ton of useless code that serves no purpose!

The only problem that Adobe has with Apple is that Apple demands something that is relatively free of serious bugs, and has some decent performance - both of which are very real issues with resource hogging bloatware like Flash...

However, it would be gravy days for the Department Of Justice - like ten years of anti-trust procedures, and at least two forests converted into legal paperwork. MS would loose if Ballmer showed up in court, and I mean loose...

However, if you look as the list of Microsoft acquisitions, Microsoft hasn't faired too well, with most of the technology that they bought relegated to the trash bin. Places like MS are just not good for fresh ideas - look at the problems that the XBox had - so bad that they had to move the XBox building off campus, by orders of Mr. Gates himself.
