Who saw that coming? Adobe just announced the acquisition of Figma for $20 billion! It's being called a 'new era of collaborative creativity', but what does it really mean? Dylan Field explained on twitter, followed by plenty of serious thought from the design community...but let's face it, we're here for the memes! Let's go:

There's always one that doesn't age well 😉:

Just force quit, memory is running out:

Distracted?
