I heard it from the birds that Microsoft has been entertaining the posibility of purchasing Macromedia for the last year or so. Macromedia is the software company that has an impressive stable of graphic and web-related apllications including : Dreamweaver, Shockwave, Freehand, Firework, Director, Coldfusion ... But what does Microsoft really want here ? Let's take a closer look at this heh heh .

Ever since the appearance of the first Java applet (circa 1992) featuring the Java Mascot "Duke", the World Wide Web has not been the same. You can not go anywhere on the net and not run into Java applets. You see applets on game sites, casino sites, chat sites... In fact vm chat on this site is developed with Java applet technology itself. And this has been a thorn in Bill Gates and Co's side for a long time. Microsoft has figured that to dominate the net they would have to have an "Interactive Interface" to counter Java applets. Yes yes you guessed it . They want FLASH . Now Flash is a very nice little thing that can make clean and crisp colorful animation. You can also write a chat program or any web-based program with Flash. But let's face it, Flash does not have the backend power of Java . Actually come to think of it, Flash's Actionscript is a revision of Javascript which is a derivative of Java. So, do you see what I mean ? No matter what Microsoft tries to do they can not get away from Java heh heh

heh heh jupiterblue, I don't think that Macromedia and Adobe are in direct competition at all, though Macromedia Freehand and Adobe Illustrator do the same thing but I have never heard of anyone using Freehand. Most Macromedia's products are for web developers and people with coding experience whereas Adobe's products are more for the designers and artists. But one thing for certain, if microsoft ever buys Macromedia you will be a very happy man hehe
