Are we being too hard on Adobe?

Filed under
Software

I was looking back on my previous posts about Adobe needing to open source stuff and I wondered…..

Was I being too hard on Adobe just because Google are so generous?

The perception is that every company can do what Google does and open source everything they can and even go as far as to buy other companies to open source their products.

Adobe three core products

1. Flash
2. Creative suite
3. PDF

Flash is an open specification but to open source the client and the encoders would mean it might reduce the current and future revenue that might come from it. Flash may seem bad/unstable/horrible/down right useless now but historically and currently its on nearly all of the computers in the world.
