    Wow....my first thought is something along the lines of...

    "That's not good..."

    I prefer to see a little more competition.

    Agrees on the need for a competition!

    I would like to see how Apple is going to react.

    It would be nice to see some 'Flash' added to PDF files. Actually, the latest version of Adobe Acrobat has 3D fuctionality...I look forward to seeing/using that.

    My guess is apple will be happy with this buy-out, since Apple has a really good relationship with Adobe (according to Steve Jobs), and having an even more powerful 'friend' can't hurt.

    Aww...crap. I like to keep my apples and oranges seperate...i had a friend who mixed apple juice with his orange juice because he wanted both. freakin sicko...he thought it was funny.

    I think this is bad. everything will be the same. ugh...i guess jumping between platforms will be easier but it's all gonna be the same pile of warm poop. :grumpy:
