Adobe Systems Inc. announced that they are to buy Macromedia Inc. for about $3.4 billion in stock.

The merger gives Adobe access to the Macromedia Flash products, the dominant animated software on the Internet, which is also expanding right now into mobile phones.
For Web designers this could also mean that Macromedia and Adobe design software will be more integrated.

Quote from the Adobe Press-Release:
"The combination of Adobe and Macromedia strengthens our mission of helping people and organizations communicate better. Through the combination of our powerful development, authoring and collaboration tools – and the complementary functionality of PDF and Flash – we have the opportunity to drive an industry-defining technology platform that delivers compelling, rich content and applications across a wide range of devices and operating systems.
