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.

Are there _any_ evidence that they talked about a merger?? Does it even make sense? Adobe would cost Microsoft more than one third of their cash reserves, would it really be worth it???



My own guess would be that Microsoft wants Silverlight support in future Adobe products. After all, they already support HTML5.
