Yes I would; and the premise of your question makes no sense. Why would Google spend money to acquire Nik Software and then ignore it or allow it to die?

Such acquisitions are getting to be fairly common, as companies buy other companies for the purposes of gaining a short-term revenue stream and then killing competition to their other offerings. For example, Computer Associates bought out several applications I was using, after which all development ceased, and support became non-existent.
