Adobe and Macromedia

You may have heard me whining about Adobe (creator of the infernal PDF format who’s only really good product is Photoshop) buying Macromedia (creator of flash and other web/publishing-friendly products) the other day (if you haven’t, trust me, I whined).

Daring Fireball’s put together an easy to understand FAQ about the buy that attempts to answer questions about what will happen to products of both companies. Might be worth a read, since both product lines factor into the future of … every … web site.

The buy really is saddening, but there’s humor in everything.
