    Adobe vs Apple

      There was an interesting thread started here that got blocked by the 'Kindergarten Cops':

      I, then, started a new thread... who knows how long it'll be up - deleted, locked or me banned :

      But, the point is, the age-old conundrum: Which came first? The chicken or the egg?

       

      I would like to posit that if Adobe had not supported the Mac from Day-1, the Mac would have died in the Graphics Community.

       

      Cheers guys...

            I would guess that this is not a support issue and two Adobe could be held accountable for what users say and the laws of liable might
            e on the Apple side so this is also something Adobe and Apple have to work through themselves.

              I think the first post does not have the facts right. Apple is trying to dump Adobe (Flash) because the bugs and issues, and people in the field are saying that Apple is fed up with Adobe's inefficiency of its softwares. Microsoft also is trying to support Apple by developing the new HTML5. BUT is not that easy, people will need to buy new hardware to make the software work; meaning it will take many years to see HTML5 working free of Flash and people not longer caring about Flash.

              You can search the web for HTML5 and you will find articles like this one: http://www.crn.com/software/224700374, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5, or if you want the deep knowledge: http://www.w3.org/2010/04/w3ctrack-pr.html

               

              Adobe needs to improve to justify the need for its software, this is something that Adobe does not want the investors to see. Maybe that is why the Thread was closed and deleted.

               

              That is why some people are saying that Flash in the feature will be part of Illustrator.

               

              BTW people thinks that is why the iPad does not have flash, and the minority of the people thinks that Apple does not want to install an open software in their product.
