Here’s an interesting development. Microsoft is rumoured to be talking about acquiring Macromedia. If true, this would likely mean that ColdFusion MX would become a C# based product, as opposed to Java. It also has interesting implications from a .NET / Web Services perspective. It might mean that ColdFusion becomes a scripting engine for multi-platform web services… hmm!
Long slashdot thread on this topic also… filter it for higher scores or you’ll be reading all night. Predictable howls, but also some interesting insights. Not surprisingly, Microsoft critic Dan Gillmour has nothing good to say on this topic, either.
