    Excellent link! Thanks Blue Velvet. It's reassuring to hear from the source that Apple remains a strong market for Adobe, and they have no intention of leaving, if you read between the lines.

    It's also an interesting perspective on Microsoft. You can win one or two battles on one or two fronts, but when you open yourself to battles on multiple fronts, you fail overall.

    Thought the stuff about PDF and Microsoft was interesting, in the sense that they've been preparing for it for a while

    Microsoft face a real humdinger of a battle with their Metro format.
    Oh, how we hatesess them. Gollum, gollum.

    I get the sense that Adobe's relationship with Apple has been strained as a result of Adobe's success at selling Windows software and Apple's Final Cut software.

    It seems almost as if Adobe is a little over-concerned about China - but it seems like the fashionable thing to do nowadays, rather than risk underestimating them.

    It's of global interest, China of course, but I've been following the trends in Latin America, as well, as it relates to the whole open source issue and specifically where Microsoft, Linux and Apple are concerned. A kick off article from May of this year puts Brazil as one of the leaders/pace setters in Latin American countries who are wanting to put Microsoft interests in check. It's setting up for a very interesting late '06 and '07 scenario, Adobe's plans included.
