Humor Every now and then, you come across things that make the internet worthwhile. So yeah, there's this whole genitalia length comparing competition going on between Adobe and Apple, where both companies are actually arguing, with straight faces, which of the two is more open (which to me comes across as Mario and Zelda arguing over who's less of a sell-out). Luckily, though, there's the internet to make us laugh.

Who needs who most?

I am curious who needs who most. It would be interesting to know what the number of Photoshop and Illustrator installs is worldwide on PC's and MAC's vs US Stats.

Because if Adobe cut support for the MAC they may be able to knock the legs out of Apple before they could create a product, and even if they did would it be accepted as industry standard. They may have to use virtualization to run a PC version.

Or if someone like Google or Microsoft bought Adobe they could force that hand by ending support. Its not like both those companies don't have an axe to grind with Apple.

Sure design shops are almost exclusive MAC's in US. I wonder what is used worldwide. I know in Hollywood a lot of things are actually done with custom software on linux boxes and not photoshop because of the massive file sizes.
