God I hope not. When Microsoft buys companies, the users of the affected software wind up holding a flaming bag of sh*t while the former owners of the company being bought run away laughing with suitcases of money. Microsoft has a tendency to f things up. Danger hoptop, also known as T-Mobile Sidekick got turned into Kin. Hiptop fans were not amused when Microsoft nearly lost all of their personal data in Microsoft's cloud, then tried to blame it on Danger and their Linux platform. Microsoft bought Giant, which was the best spam filter for Windows, then told former Giant customers (like me), sorry, no more updates. Visio used to be a great diagramming tool until it was bought by Microsoft, now I can't stand it, and I switched to OmniGraffle and export it to the PC when I need to do work there.
A Microsoft owned Adobe would be a disaster for Adobe's customer base, which is mostly "Pro" users and creative types, regardless of which OS they use.
