    Macromedia Xpanded

    Everyone loves to use X's with new things. And Macromedia is the leading company with swf's/etc.

    It's only logical...

    Either that or it could be going along with the XP theory as well. You see, we all have heard rumors about Microsoft buying Macromedia. I think this is just the first step in the merger, naming the products accordingly. Just a little something to think about . . .

    Thumbs up

    I realy hope with all my heart that Macromedia won't be sold to Micro$oft. That can only be, in my oppinion, a bad thing.

    Gee

    I thought they were gonna merge with nVidia, you know, geforce4 MX? Or why not OS X? Or maybe they messed up with a typo early on and meant to put Flash MaX. Of course they could have been influenced by AMD and their Athlon Clock speed debacle, and decided that version numbers did not relect the actual performance of ther product.

    we may never know

    Rumors about M$ buying MM, really? Where did you hear/read this. I heard that originally FutureSplash was turned down by M$, but only bad things can happen if M$ buys MM.

    One place I read the rumor was on that site - 'really messed up'company.com

    Micro$soft buying MM? PLEASE don't!
    I was scared when MM buyed Allaire because I thought they'; go for cold fusion. In matter of facts that purchase was great. A new actionscript editor and code completition etc are from Homesite.

    But M$ buying MM? no.... Worst nightmare. But If I think .. wich I ususally don't M$ have 3k+ programmers. This shouldn't hurt right?

    By the way NetObjects Fusion started with MX.

    M$ would have to fork out a hell of a lot of money - Flash player on 98.3% of all internet user machine, major position in the market place.

    I can see why they would but I really doubt - with the current market status - that they would be able to afford it.

    M$ are too much of a monopoly already, wasn't there an investigation or something going on?

    Macromedia also announced major support for OSX - so they can't be too motivated toward pleasing Bill 'the tosspot' Gates.
