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.

While I am an Apple Fanboy and usually do not find myself agreeing with Thom, I must say that he brings up some really valid points. The issue with Carbon is simply stunning. Why Finder was not ported with 10.3 or 10.4 is beyond me. This was a very nice rebuttal. Thom, despite your soap box grandstanding on most issues, your voice is a very important one in the tech community, and you help blind folks such as myself see things a little differently. I do fear that my favorite rebel company is becoming the so-called man, and that pains me to a degree (yeah, I really would love to see the Mac overtake MS, so only a little pain...). However, having people like you that in a small way help keep Apple honest is crucial. Keep up the good work!
