Microsoft is interested in Macromedia
As Computerwire.com reports, there are increasing rumors in corporate circles that Microsoft is planning to take over Macromedia. These are world-famous for their 'Flash products' and it is estimated that 90% of Internet users have installed the player.
Microsoft could be particularly interested in the ColdFusion MX software, which has been doing its work in the program since 2002 and made Flash a competitor to the Java 2 Enterprise Edition (J2EE). In addition, the ColdFusion Application Server is considered to be more reliable than Microsoft's Active Server Pages (ASP) and Sun's Java Server Pages (JSP).
Microsoft would reunite with a takeover and integration of the technologies in upcoming Windows versions unpleasant competitor, Sun, off your neck. For the time being, however, it may be doubted whether such a takeover would be declared legal. After all, the intentions, which clearly serve to further expand a monopoly, are obvious.
