So I was proven wrong... <Hangs head in shame>

Adobe has received a ton of press lately for their role in dealing with the 
community.  I was trying to head in a different direction than MS, so I 
picked Adobe.  I think Adobe is growing up, and they can see the road ahead 
of them.

You are right though.  Each piece of software has their own place.   That is 
the freedom of choice.
