Adobe Devours Macromedia

ADOBE DEVOURS MACROMEDIA….Natasha is not thrilled by the news that Adobe is buying Macromedia:

Well that is just great. Now instead of Macromedia products being nominal memory hogs, Adobe will probably massage them into programs of such spectacular bloat and magnitude that they’ll bluescreen my computer if I so much as try to run Notepad simultaneously.

I sympathize. I know that Adobe’s graphic arts customer base all have monster machines, but it would be nice if Adobe could at least pay a wee bit of attention to the bloat in their mass market consumer products. It’s really out of control.
