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.

You all missed out the most interesting part in Jobs words.

"Perhaps Adobe should focus more on creating great HTML5 tools for the future"
=> A new Apple IDE coming for html5,css,JS ??

Not all people like coding everything from ZERO, people using Flash have a great IDE with many feature.
Maybe we will see Apple providing a similar tool for that generating HTML5 and Javascript+CSS code.

It is realy unbelievable that we still don't have any IDE with easy interface that generate HTML5 code.


Apple already has an IDE, it's called xcode. Lost in all of this is that compelling applications can be created for the iphone, itouch, ipad, etc with only html, css and javascript. There is no need for the app store and your app can't get rejected by Apple.

Distribution is just a web server away and they will even continue to function offline.
