Chime in: Which companies should Microsoft acquire?

Microsoft has a huge portfolio of services spread across various industries and sits among the top firms for cloud services, consumer computing, and video games. With the benefit of being among the world's largest companies, sometimes existing products are ushered into the Microsoft family.

Several high-profile acquisitions have been seen over the years, including LinkedIn and most recently, Github. There are still several companies well-positioned to be bought out too, even if they may be costly. One Windows Central forum user brought up the top firms they'd like to see Microsoft acquire.

Mine in that order: 1. Atlassian 2. Adobe 3. Steam 4. Stack Exchange 5. Docker 6. Autodesk
