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.

It has a lot of good points.

But it misses the endgame. Charging people in any way for making copies of bits is immoral.(Apple and MS are doing that on a fairly regular basis.) You can ask for money for services, but the act of copying bits has no cost and hence has to be free.

Anything else is just old simple minded analog thinking.
