In case you have not heard the news this morning, Adobe announced that it is in talks to purchase Macromedia in a stock based deal for $3.4 billion dollars. Its not a done deal yet, but if it does fly we’re sure users will see many changes afoot in some of their favorite programs. Macromedia Freehand is our tool of choice here at the factory to create the iconic goodness you all know and download, and the thought of Freehand updates going the way of the Dodo is sad to say the least. All of the workers will watch with anticipation to see what rumblings go on between these two software companies and maybe, just maybe, we’ll take another look at Illustrator in the meantime. Oh boy.
