Adobe and Macromedia

I'm sure by now many of you may have heard or read about this, but nonetheless – here goes …

This morning Macromedia and Adobe announced their merger plans, however this has not occurred yet as there are formal processes that are still yet to

be met/completed.

Macromedia and Adobe have put up a si

te with some further information and there is more information available in a Macromedia press release.

Mike Chambers has posted a Macromedian's view on the merger at his blog.

This is definitely some interesting news! BIG news!

    Adobe pays threefold their annual revenue to purchase Macromedia.

    Macromedia has a vision and an openness culture,
    Adobe has money – They complement one another.

    The famous pdf and flash player will strengthen the capability of
    delivering cutting edge experience in video, graphic and design.

    Macrob will not entering the biz of web-portals and browser manufacturers.
    Accordingly, the Yahoo Toolbar will not disappear in the download section.

    As a leader in web&print production, their designer and developer community is more valuable than anything else. They gain the power to control browser, operating system and telecommunication vendors.

    What will change in the near future?
    The success of Macromedia Studio MX will continue and Flash, Coldfusion along with the Dreamweaver will be a solid component of the product family. Adobe’s GoLive will have a short live. Vica versa Fireworks competes with Illustrator, but Fireworks uses a different workflow process. Definitely in question is FreeHand.

    What is the strategy of Macrob?
    To enhance Rich Media Application with Flex and Flash, to penetrate the mobile market with the Flash IDE, delivering streaming and synchronous video (Flash Communication Server, Breeze), have a big toe in the Education market and all shaked up with coldfusion. Entering the entreprise Market. In short, that was the visionary strategy of Macromedia, since today. Don’t ask me what tomorrow morning brings.

    8ball ist the last ball you sink in a pool.
