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.

No Hypocrisy

Jobs isn't being hypocritical commenting on Adobe's recent and perhaps late move from Carbon to Cocoa. iTunes on Windows might not use all the features of the OS, but iTunes isn't a development layer for applications that Microsoft is relying on to have the best and latest applications written for it's operating system. Apple's own programs that haven't been updated are also not stopping developers create the latest applications.

No analogy. No hypocrisy.
