Tim putting the sizzle in Adobe’s fizzle.

I got a few emails this week about Adobe’s executive shooting his pipes off about how Microsoft has fizzled in comparison to the mighty Adobe, basically the usual ranting by Adobe staffers outlining that Silverlight doesn’t exist and it’s failing propaganda that would make the most devoted politician cringe with pep rally fatigue.

I generally ignore Adobe staffer’s childish antics these days as i swore this year I’d not stoop to their level. That being said, I thought Tim Sneath wrote a great response to this stupidity and it’s well worth the read.


Tim’s always has a calming voice on these types of topics, i think it’s the English accent that puts you at ease… 🙂 I generally would of beaten Adobe up a bit more with my blog posts on a lot of their FUD and how the comments in most of these stories end up going against there rants, but again, I decided not to go down that path this year 🙂

To his highness Garrett at Adobe, i’d simply say this:

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things

  1. Hey Scott,

    love the tags for this entry!!!

    But it’s not really news these days is it? Adobe is always spouting doom and gloom for Silverlight these days. you can hardly kick yourself through your RSS feeds without stumpling on at least one "Silverlight is failing" post.

    i wonder when they’ll get down to actually making Air/Flash etc do something new and inspirational rather than keep touting the line they’re doing now?
