Adobe to Acquire Macromedia

As featured on OSNews and other news sources, Adobe is acquiring Macromedia for a whopping US$3.4 billion. This merger will undeniably form the largest multimedia software house, as far as the industry is concerned.

Personally, I was never into Macromedia stuff… but I have always been impressed by Adobe goodies, especially Photoshop. It is without a doubt the image editing app for semi-pro to professional purposes. What kind of innovation will this acquisition bring to the industry? Only time will tell.

Personally though, I do feel that this would be a good deal for both companies. The technologies involved in both parties seem to complement each other.
