Adobe juggernaut rolls on

Adobe to buy Macromedia in 3.4 billion dollar deal.

Adobe announced today that they will buy Macromedia in a $3.4 billion (U.S.) stock deal. Both companies have approved the transaction, so unless some government meddling pops up, it's a done deal. The question today in geekdom is "What happens to GoLive?" Macromedia's web applications are the 500 kg gorillas of the industry, so how will Adobe integrate those products with their GoLive package - a package a lot of people have a soft spot for when they need to make quick and clean web documents?
