[REBOL] Re: Microsoft to buy Macromedia?

From: steve:shireman:semaxwireless at: 25-Dec-2002 13:31

Petr: It sounds like good news to me, the pot buying the black kettle. MS can only fatten Macromedia, and make it worse, they have no idea how to move it forward. My guess it they only bought them because they thought Macromedia had some market they could keep. I predict it will give us all a better lead. If MS knew how to do something like Flash, they would have done it already, wouldn't they? When they bought WebTV, what good did they do there, besides sink the WebTV logo with the sheer weight of their name? As they sink / gut Macromedia / Flash, it eliminates Macromedia from the competitive landscape. Think of it as a Christmas present for us. Steve Shireman Petr Krenzelok wrote:
