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.

Thom, why do I get the feeling you have trouble making friends will all that negativity you spread into this world, especially via OSnews. Your 'articles' keep surprising me, but what surprises me more is that Eugenia isn't preventing you from completely destroying the integrity of this site.

Most of this article was good, but like many of the articles you write, you just have to give out a blow to one of the parties involved in the article. In this article it's Flash for Linux, which in your opinion is a "disaster". Please keep that opinion for a personal blog, and maybe secure it with a very strong password that nobody will ever crack. Or at least not in a lifetime.

People like you tend to make it worse for everyone, in that you voice your opinion as if it is everyone's. You're not going to get the result you want this way.

What you need to keep in proper context is that OSNews is a multi-person personal blog, and that's what you can expect: all the benefits and downfalls of that, respectively, and not necessarily the news that's not rehashed.
