Adobe buys Macromedia

Adobe buys Macromedia, so much for competition, at least in the webmaster/web designer toolbox market. Let's hope they're not just buying out competition and that it does not sign the return of the "Web As PDF And Flash". I'm looking forward to see how GoLive and Dreamweaver will evolve, as I've always be very found of GoLive but had to live with Dreamweaver because of its quasi corporate monopoly (it's more difficult than being a Mac user actually).

Update: Mike Chambers from Macromedia developers relations has published some initial thoughts on Macromedia + Adobe.
