Microsoft flash

      It was Macromedia then came Adobe and now it gonna be Microsoft, see this nytimes
 or so the rumors say -> cnet and zdnet
Its being speculated that Microsoft is buying Adobe, I think this would ease a few things and complicate a few things for the developers. We would have Blend come under flash (MS Expression Blend is the designer for SilverLight), complicated because, the flash guys (including me) wouldnt feel comfortable and the interface of Flash and PhotoShop would  look like blend??
Microsoft would love SilverLight to be the animation platform of the HTML5 browsers.
Even if Silverlight did get a push out of this, there would be loyal flash programmers. Just look at thefwa all the SOTDs (site of the day) are complete flash websites.
