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.

Mine is, and I say Apple (and specifically Jobs) has nothing to do with openness. Neither does Adobe or Microsoft, but neither of these two is limiting my options (as an end user) nor is Microsoft limiting my options as a developer.

And yes I agree that flash (at least as it stands right now) is junk ... but let ME decide about it, don't be a fascist (or communist) and then try to sugarcoat it (spin it)

As for your post ... I second *woosh*
