    I've been a fan of Macromedia products for years so this news came as a shock and some concern. The competition was assuring me of better quality products at affordable prices. I used Adobe for design and Macromedia for web. How will Adobe develop Flash, Cold Fusion and Director? GoLive will not replace Dreamweaver in a near future. Freehand will surely die quickly while some of Fireworks features might be integrated into ImageReady.

    There is an upside: the interaction of some applications will facilitate web creation (Premiere will work hand in hand with Director and Flash, etc.). Still, that is not good news for me as a consumer.

    Anybody got some Adobe shares? :notworthy

    Noooooooooo...it should be the other way around!

    Photoshop I love for images and trusty fireworks for tweaks and text additions.

    Why did adobe never take off with the 3d world creation software of atmosphere...I was going to have the first ever3d interactive gambling portal. :(

    Ah well.

    This makes a monopoly out of the web design market...

    Ahhhh! A Macromedia colleague! ;)

    I seemed to be the only one here who actually cared. Started with Flash 3, found Director. I thought Director would break into the web, considering its affinity for bitmaps. Too bad. Its scripting was easy to use and fun.

    I still use both Photoshop and Fireworks. And I think Dreamweaver is the best web editor.

    I doubt Adobe would just eliminate most Macromedia products. But I fear we will end up paying much more... for new versions of inferior quality, more bugs and slower customer service.

    Nothing good about a monopoly for the consumer.

    Thanks for your post, Dean :)
