I think the real issue here is the longer term relationship between flash
and svg and for Adobe having a credible graphics library for hand-helds,
mobile phones, imbedded devices, etc. By joining together they can
eliminate some confusion between do I use flash or svg and at the same time
get them selves ready for Microsoft's coming xaml with the release of
Longhorn, (avalon).

Flash and SVG are real-time vector graphics so is Microsoft's new OS. What
happens to Macromedia if they were to loose the battle or to Adobe if they
never tried to even win? That's the background of this merger.

There will be some loosers amongst us who are happy with an app that will
likely go away as they consolidate product lines.
