Re: Topaz labs/ onone or nik softweres users

It's worth considering that now that Google has just purchased Nik there is some concern about its future, whether warranted or not. Even if Google doesn't do anything negative to the company sometimes people take buyouts, use this opportunity to leave and start another company with ideas they've had, all sorts of stuff. So there may be a flight from the ranks once the dust settles. I have a feeling this will be good for Google and not particularly good for Nik users, but that's just a premonition.

It doesn't seem like the best time to make a major investment in Nik Plugins, though. I'd hold off if they're your choice to see what happens. For all anyone knows Google might fire-sale the plugins just because they can, and it's not what they bought the company for.

On the same tip, perhaps a group of Nik employees will form a new company and buy back just the pro Plugins and soldier on?
