Microsoft Not Buying Adobe

According to sources, Microsoft is definitely NOT buying Adobe, confirming this rumor as just a rumor. Which would be good news, really, as Adobe and their bug ridden, bloated PDF Reader would be a horrible match with Windows. Updates already come too fast with Windows, they shouldn’t add 2 new daily updates with Adobe. And don’t get me started on their CPU hungry, slow, 32-bit Flash.

In any case, it is not a big surprise at this point if longtime rivals like Adobe and Microsoft (MSFT)–which makes a competing video technology called Silverlight to Adobe’s Flash–talk about trying to stop the explosive growth of Apple, especially in the mobile space.
