Adobe buys Macromedia

It seems like that an operating system monopoly is not enough. Adobe bought Macromedia, which leaves me with mixed feelings. I like Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, I never saw a point in their WYSIWYG tools. The Macromedia products I like are the ones they got when they bought Allaire. What I can forsee with that merger is even more “Click together your web site” tools which claim to create “100% WAI and 508 compliant accessible web sites”. Don’t believe the hype.
