Pretty sure this is very much a rumour only at this point.

A merger would really shake things up, there is so much cross over between Flash & Silverlight that is hard to see both staying.. On one hand MS can’t ignore the HUGE market share of Flash on the other, Silverlight is the foundation of Windows Phone 7.

Say what you will about Microsoft, but they do know how to make very good dev tools.

+1 Chuckanucka You are damn right, they do know. It’s already Flash CS5 and adobe still can not fix old bugs with HTML formatted text, hope Microsoft helps these guys :-) Also it would be a nice opportunity to “patch” adobe flash player to support Silverlight :-))) lol

From what I understand (read around) the rumor is quite unfunded, the meetup between adobe and microsoft was more about products and strategies, not an aquisition. And I sure hope that is the case.

To be honest, I think if this happens it will be a very bad thing for Flash devs. Not only will Apple never consider supporting flash but they will most likely no longer (again) allow flash apps in their store. There are also other ramifications but I for one don’t see any upsides to this .. for us at least.

Seems illogical to me. Silverlight doesn’t worth that much, nor destroying flash.
