Picture this instead:

Microsoft buys Adobe and Quadralay and ...

Adobe actually seems like a possibility. Each new version of Word seems
to attempt to incorporate more features of FM (in the process making
Word even unfriendlier than before). Course I can't say for the rest of
the programs, but if anyone could do it, they could.

If Abobe were to somehow acquire a government monopoly concern
