It’s murder what Steve Jobs is doing to flash. The problem, after Jobs’ hypocrisy and such is that he is right. Flash sucks a lot. That is why Microsoft, who holds about 95% of the computer market today isn’t saying anything. Because they know, too, that flash sucks for PCs even more than it sucks for Apple. Flash’s beeen crashing Firefox and IE for a long long time, but it’s the way people make money. Microsoft could turn it off, of course, but then there will be no more banners, no more sites and no more use for a computer. What’s the point of having a computer with internet if you can’t view a site (that is ad-supported) or a video or a game? None.
Why isn’t Microsoft jumpin’ in Adobe’s support?
