what with microsoft buying out companies like iView and Lionhead Studios what will be next?

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.

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