Adobe isn't alone in acquiring something, then selling it off, killing it or
letting a product languish. Not much worse than others.

I remember Guy Kawasaki convinced Adobe to acquire his Touchbase and
Datebook programs - Adobe didn't have a clue what to do with them. Then they
sold it to Now when I was there, and Now sort of sat on it, gave modest
upgrades, but mostly just got it to acquire the customer base for NUD &C.
