Adobe buying Macromedia

Adobe to acquire Macromedia.

I'm not enough of either a graphic designer or web dude to understand the finer points of the two company's product lines, but these guys do:

Quick sum-up: Adobe is print, Macromedia is web. Lots of fear about favorites in the overlap being left to die. Competition with Microsoft is probably a big factor.

Really, quite a surprise. Saying goodbye to GoLive won't be hard, but one wonders about Adobe's ability to handle the diverse product line that Macromedia has built through aquisition (Captivate, Homesite, Authorware etc.) I am a pessimist, I see pain for the consumer.
