Is Adobe the new Microsoft?

People sometimes ask me why I am not a fan of Adobe?

The main reason is that they have very lackluster Macintosh support.  Misbehaving Installers, slow installers, and quality control that Microsoft would never accept.

Microsoft is criticized for throwing out releasing and then over the next dozen or so patches slowly eliminating bugs (and introducing new ones).  But Adobe has just finally added preliminary support for Stage Video, a technology aimed to reduce heavy CPU usage during video playback. I suspect this is a direct move to try to reduce the criticism from Apple regarding the high drain on the system when running Flash on the Macintosh.

But is this too little too late?  Time will tell.
