Adobe and Macromedia announced today that Adobe will acquire
Macromedia for 3.4 billion US dollars. Links on and both point to the following URL:

Here is the techwriter-related question: How do you think the tools
you use regularly will change? Do you think Adobe will discontinue
Freehand and Fireworks in favor of Illustrator and Photoshop? What
about Go Live and Dreamweaver?

Do you think that the change is healthy for the graphics/web
development market (with the end result being one company with an
enormous market share)? Do you think this is a good change or not?
