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.

Seems to me that holier-than-thou applies to some OS News editors as well.

But that's just common .nl-ism.

"I really dreaded writing this article, since it will surely be construed as me somehow being pro-Microsoft"

We don't care. Really.

Apparently you do, since you are reacting to it.

Anyway, I think Thom's article provides some nice counterpoints. Especially Jobs' Carbon -> Cocoa transition argument is nonsense, as pointed out by Thom.

I expect more fireworks to come the next few weeks. Once it's done, maybe we can settle on HTML5 + Theora, or hopefully VP8 ;) .
