What do you think about ebay acquiring magento then launches xcommerce an ebay product running on magento, zend framework platform. Do you think this will affect the community edition of magento?

My Thoughts: x.commerce will be more a commerce platform/ecosystem as opposed to a particular product so I would assume there will only be stronger integrations between magento, paypal and ebay components going forward. (Eg. Being able to leverage auction data perhaps within magento or vice-versa)

My take is it could have a large impact.

I'm sure it will. But whatever it is i hope it does more good for the developers and the customers.

Yes anytime a new company aquires a old company it changes quite a bit. Ebay is a huge company with lots of resources. I am sure the company will grow now!
