I think abobe might be on Microsoft's List. ...Innovation by acquisition. However, I would not worry about a Microsoft acquisition of Adobe. If you think that Windows Media created antitrust problems for the Redmond Monopoly, a Microsoft attempt to acquire Adobe would make those problems look like a missed deadline.

I never knew that Hotmail was a separate company :confused: .

Anyway, back to the point. I think the next company to be acquired by Microsoft will be Apple :)

Plus, if Microsoft acquired Adobe, there'd be no way to develop their excellent Paint software, which currently rivals Photoshop :rolleyes:
