Editorial Holier-than-thou, an adjective, meaning "marked by an air of superior piety or morality". Everybody has moments in their life where they get into a "holier-than-thou" attitude, and I think Steve Jobs' open letter regarding Adobe, and Flash in particular, really fits the bill. There are three specific points I want to address to illustrate just how holier-than-thou, hypocritical, and misleading this letter really is.

Good Points/But Flash Is Crap

Thom has made very legitimate points about Steve/Apple. I have not deleted Windows but, like Thom was saying, when I go from my Mac desktop to my Windows desktop and use iTunes, it is truly a cringe-worthy experience.

But, on to Flash. Steve is right in the more narrow sense. Flash is crap, especially for mobile devices. And there are much better alternatives. In this case the ball is in Adobe's court and Jobs has put it there. Adobe should really and truly get rid of Flash and embrace the new tools. Again, I am speaking in this more narrow sense and not in the wider sense that Thom did.
