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.

killing flash wouldn't make microsoft moonlight a favorite for Linux users and google wouldn't switch to silverlight on youtube

Agreed. Killing Flash would simply accelerate the rise to prominence of standards for rich content, namely HMTL5/CSS/Fast ECMAscript/SVG.

YouTube would simly switch to HTML5/WebM, offer a WebM code for IE9 users to install, and advise other IE users to install either Chrome or maybe even Firefox/Opera.

YouTube already has encoded to WebM over one million of its most popular videos.
