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.

don't forget about Adobe's patent portfolio. Flash holds A LOT of patents that MS could leverage with Silver Light. Or at least it wouldn't be at risk of patent infringment due to reinventing the wheel, so to speak.
