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.

Probably what is disastrous is the performance of the flash experience on Linux.


Solutions are starting to appear which use GPU hardware shaders and which can implement LLVM-based Actionscript 3.0.

Being a plugin, Lightspark is not as good a solution for rich content as the GPU-accelerated HTML5/ECMAscript/SVG/CSS/Canvas W3C standards, I grant you, but it performs pretty much as well as your hardware itself can.
