Adobe to buy Macromedia

In a bold move, Adobe announced that they are going to be buying Macromedia. This is huge. Adobe has all of the best known design software. Macromedia has all of the best known web development software. This will create a software giant. It will be interesting to see what comes of this, how it will affect web developers like me.

UPDATED: I still have a hard time seeing how the merging of two of the largest computer design and development software companies is going to have any actual benefit to us developers and designers. Here are a few articles with interesting perspectives.
