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.

A lot of adobes products, while admittedly unnecessarily bloated, are actually quite good. I wouldn't want EITHER MS or Apple buying them, Adobe runs the business well and their cross platform support is good. either major OS vendor buying them would surely leverage the purchase to gain an edge and likely kill off the product on the other platform, or just make it suck more and get updates less, you know the usual...


Let's all pray for Oracle to buy Adobe! ;)
