Couldn't believe my eyes when I first read it!!

But it's true; Adobe has purchased Interakt... :eek:

Worst thing is that AJAX Toolbox is discontinued as of now; they [Interakt] must have known about the impending buy out and yet morally and ethically turned a blind-eye to their customers.

I for one am not happy!! I've been a fairly regular user of Interakt products and fear the worst now it's in Adobe's hands...

It seems everything I "love" winds up over at Adobe!!! E.g., Director, Fireworks... :rolleyes:

Let's wait and see what happens now then...

it just comes down to one company (eg Microsoft) having a monopoly in a field. Now I admit, I have no idea what Interakt is either. But I also don't like the idea of one company controlling all the programs I need to do my job. I mean it becomes very easy a few years from now for Adobe to give the W3C the middle finger and say "dreamweaver now only codes for 'this technology" or "we no longer offer support for PHP/MySQL, you must now use Adobe.net/AdobeSql"

Granted I'm just pulling scenarios out of thin air here, but I'm still concerned about the implications of Adobe's ownership of dreamweaver & flash.

I'm totally with you, except I know what Interakt is.
