The Register reports the recently announced merger of Adobe and Macromedia, leaders in each their own field. This new monster could either produce the best all-in-one software we’ve ever seen, or could create the biggest bloater in history.
How the companies choose to brand the product could cause them to either suffer with the Microsoft syndrome, used by most, hated by all because of its bloated crummyness. If features get shoved together for the sake of integrating them, it might end up like in some of Adobe’s most commonly used software family, the PDF readers, about 10 times the size of what most mortals need and want. MmMmm 90MB of features no one uses…
