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.

I actually latched on to this bit here:

"We should all force these companies to make good stuff."

Which seems to suggest that "we" the consumers should be forcing these (Adobe, Apple, Microsoft, Dell...) to deliver good stuff. If the majority of the user base yelled back, the companies would be forced to improve there products (see Microsoft's quick address of Vista). It's not for Microsoft to force Itunes out bit rather for us end users to do so.
