First Macromedia bought Allaire, and now Adobe is buying Macromedia.

First off, I really wish I could have convinced someone to choose PHP instead of ColdFusion 5 years ago when building a web application I still, to this very day, have to fight with… Really. I really do.

Second, as brought up at What Do I Know, what does this mean for SVG now that Adobe will have all that Flash-mojo under it’s belt? (Note: I am very pro-SVG, and somewhat anti-Flash…)

Once again, this should aid to illustrate why I am so in favor of open-source software and open standards… Sigh… at least things are never boring.
