Why not wait for few years; buy Adobe instead?
Well, I have almost done away with most Adobe Products because there are already good (read better) Macromedia replacements. I have even learnt to use Fireworks pretty well, but that's sure gonna go. The news is everywhere and my reaction is "*Confused*", crossed fingers, bite nails and wait and watch for the road ahead.
But with the current growth of Macromedia, why not wait for coupla years and buy Adobe instead?
