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 am a Linux user, all problems when browsing (Chrome/Firefox) comes from Flash.
When I say ALL, it's ALL.

In facebook, flash videos stops in the middle, so I need to replay from the middle everytime.

When listening to music provided with flash streaming, it crashes after ~1h of listening.

When I open many tabs including Youtube, they crashes.

ALL Flash sites looks baaaaaad.

When I play video I listen to to fan of my CPU turning fast because of the huge CPU usage.

IT IS CRAP. And CPU intensive in addition...

We all agree about it.
However, Thom is not talking about how crap is Flash.

He is talking about how evil is apple. Apple IS the evil of evil.

Actually, i think Apple is as most evil as an IT company could be.

Oh rubbish. Calling Microsoft and Apple evil is plain stupid. These are companies who are motivated by profit, that’s not evil people! If you want to talk about evil companies then we should be discussing Coca Cola.

What company out there cares about you, not your money? There isn't one.

Healthcare systems don't care. Banks don't care. Religious groups (they might as well be companies) don't care. So, why should computer companies care about you?
