Flash Player + Adobe Acrobat = disaster
I just read on Colin's blog that apparently Adobe has plans to integrate the Flash Player and the Adobe Acrobat Reader (also known affectionately as the bloated beast from hell.) I'm sorry, I didn't know there were plans to draw up Flash's death certificate!
WTF would you want to merge these two players?
I'm really racking my brain to come up with some feature that Acrobat could add to the toolset of the Flash developer and, for the life of me, I can't! Could someone from Macromedia please give the Adobe folk a clue?
Flash got to where it is today in no small part due to the tiny size of the player. You add Adobe Acrobat in there and you'll have a disaster of Adobe
Dimensions Atmosphere proportions.
