Scott Kessler writes in Business Week that Macromedia has suffered from its acquisition of Allaire and continues to see soft demand for its products:
Macromedia’s wager was poorly timed. Some 17 months after the company bought Allaire, demand for its products is still weak and there’s no recovery in sight. In effect, the company doubled down and lost.
I suppose I’ll be able to judge this myself, indirectly, when I start to see sales data for my Dreamweaver/Fireworks book.
