sad news, I could live with the idea of Autodesk owning Naiad(well maybe), but instead they just squashed it..

Here's the official email:

Dear Naiad customer,
>>
>> Please be aware that Autodesk has acquired the Naiad fluid simulation
>> technology in order to accelerate their research and development of
>> simulation technologies for visual effects.
>>
>> The Naiad technology, along with the engineering expertise of the
>> founders of Exotic Matter, are anticipated to benefit not only
>> Autodesk’s Digital Entertainment Creation solutions, but also Autodesk
>> research into cloud services for the Media & Entertainment industry.
>>
>> Your involvement has been crucial to the success of Naiad and I would
>> like to thank you for supporting Naiad and being a part of the
>> development of the technology.
>>
>> As part of the Naiad technology being acquired by Autodesk, you need
>> to be aware that:
>>
>> * After Naiad 0.6.1 is released, all further Naiad development will cease.
>> * The current maintenance term will be the last one offered by Exotic
>> Matter. All maintenance contracts will be terminated after the current
>> term expires.
>> * The full source code for Naiad Studio, Naiad Command Line, and all
>> Naiad Buddies will be included as part of the Naiad 0.6.1 release.
>> Due to the development transition to Autodesk, Exotic Matter support
>> for open-source code will no longer be provided.
>> * New Naiad licenses are not available through Exotic Matter.
>> Inquiries should be directed to Autodesk.
>>
>> I am very excited about the future of the Naiad technology. It is
>> anticipated that certain Naiad technology may find its way into future
>> Autodesk offerings and we look forward to working with you to make
>> this happen.
>>
>>
>> Sincerely,
>> Marcus Nordenstam

I think you are missing the point here. It's not that I don't believe the rumor, it's that the lack of official confirmation technically still not makes it anything more or less than a rumor. Having the status of a rumor says nothing as to the validity of the claim hidden therein...

erhm, you have been missing the official emails that several people of the industry received before that.
Only because you don't know anybody trustworthy who might have disclosed this information to you, doesn't make it a rumour. But well, now you know better
