Graphics, User Interfaces Adobe has a promotion that states that if you will attest that you're unemployed, they'll give you a free license to Flex Builder 3 that you can use to burnish your skills.

RE[5]: A good deal

Yes, completely true. But if Adobe goes down with NO buyers, then no one is going to be developing HTML 5, or Firefox, or Chrome either. We'll all be too desperate searching for food and water (which is where I think we're headed no matter - the entire banking system is insolvent).

The only way that no one would buy Adobe (they have a ton of IP) is if the economy was so bad that it was self destructing. At that point I don't think you would be worrying about what computer language to learn.

I think this is a good thing for Adobe to do. It takes advantage of joblessness to leverage their technology and one more tool in your repertoire is never a bad thing.
