    I'm sad. It's an acquisition that makes a lot of sense, don't get me wrong, but I especially use Figma not just because it's a good product but to actively avoid giving Adobe money… fuck

      Sometimes competition is eating your lunch because everyone hates you. Comcast would not exist as such if wired ISPs had to allow equal access to their infrastructure the way wireless carriers do. Xfinity mobile is especially ironic to me that Comcast can compete with Verizon in the mobile space, leveraging Verizon's infrastructure, for this exact reason.

      Everyone I know that loves the power of Adobe products hates their bundled bloatware more. Viable competitors tend to gain this market quickly.
