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.

Why drudge up Hurd?

Linux
GNOME
KDE
Apache
Firefox
Thunderbird

There seems to be quite a bit of successful examples to draw on and some of them are not remotely licensed under GPL.

And since you mention Hurd, are you suggesting that there are no failing closed source development projects? They are automatically successful because they don't happen to relate to an angry man and one of many different OS kernels?
