Apple has a long relationship with Adobe. In fact, we met Adobe’s founders when they were in their proverbial garage. Apple was their first big customer, adopting their Postscript language for our new Laserwriter printer. Apple invested in Adobe and owned around 20% of the company for many years. The two companies worked closely together to pioneer desktop publishing and there were many good times. Since that golden era, the companies have grown apart. Apple went through its near death experience, and Adobe was drawn to the corporate market with their Acrobat products. Today the two companies still work together to serve their joint creative customers – Mac users buy around half of Adobe’s Creative Suite products – but beyond that there are few joint interests.

He has some good points. But there is a lot of distortions regarding how open flash is and the liberty the developers would like to have.

The device may use (what it thinks to be) "open" standards, but that does not mean the device itself is open.

You'd think an "open" device would let you run any app you'd like, regardless of how it was compiled, or regardless of the means you get the app onto the device... Hmmm, I submit that the iPod, iPad, and the IPhone are far from open.
