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.

So we just sit on different sides of the very same coin.

I, too, am just as enthusiastic of Microsoft pushing iTunes out as I am of Apple pushing Flash. That is, none at all.

But that's just differente philosophies and I doubt we'll have any success in presenting arguments convincing enough to change each other's opinion on the matter.

I'm just happy to be proven wrong, since I was assuming there'd be a different reaction if it were another company. Even if I don't agree with the opinion, at least it's consistent ;)
