Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Well, this is interesting. The New York Times caught wind of a special and secret meeting between Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer and Adobe's frontman Shantanu Narayen. They claim the entire talk was dedicated to the fight against Apple, and one of the options discussed was... Microsoft acquiring Adobe.

Member since:

it's an unprecedented rumor. The only strategic value for MS acquiring adobe would be to kill flash in favor of silver light. but then MS is the paladin of Apple in the holy war that Jobs started...

All in all, while there are lots of reasons MS 'could' buy Adobe none of them are plausible enough to justify it... a rumor, nothing more.
