Fourth question of the theme round. (I wonder if all these links are confusing search-engine bots…)

Which company was formed from the merger of (1) and (2)?

 Cracked by varuns88 , Dibyo , Goyal , duriel , akhi , priyananda , madhur and udupendra.

varuns88 cracked the theme, and thus gets two extra points for this answer. This brings him to a total of three for this answer alone, cementing his lead in this months charts… Great work dude!

Answer: 

  1. Authorware, from Authorware Inc
  2. Director, from Macromind Paracomp

These two merged to form Macromedia, the creators of Flash. They were also recently bought out by long-term rivals Adobe.

The answer to be used as a clue to the theme is Macromedia :)
