I don't see this as a big deal. Just something different.

That's a sanguine view, certainly correct, and I agree.

What it *will* do is generate software and training costs that, given Adobe's proud pricing, can be significant for independents.

"'Customers are calling for integrated software solutions that enable them to create, manage and deliver a wide range of compelling content and applications - from documents and images to audio and video,' Bruce Chizen, chief executive of Adobe, said in a statement."

"Integrated"? Chizen's saying, in effect, that customers are calling for the integration of Adobe and MM. Are they? At what cost and for what benefit -- and to whom? Sounds like he means "stockholders". Not the same thing. Who eats the cost of churn?
