This isn't a very active board but I look for comments.

A commentator suggested Adobe would chuck away most of Macro's products, thus getting rid of an irritaing competitor. Just keep a few bits. It seemed Macro had just begun to organize itself to make money.

I bought Macro years ago at about $27 but unfortunately added stock at $66 in a moment of idiocy. Sold half recently. So probably at break even.

But now we are Adobe owners - well soon will be. I don't have the same feel for Adobe - most people seem happy to with the change. I'll look into that company, but meanwhile, is the gut feeling that it's an OK deal, long term? I guess I'm asking:

If you'd owned Adobe and never heard of Macro, would you now be a happy chappy?

Best to all
Malc
