I personally would love to see adobe playing some hardball in this game. With its dominance in the whole computer industry, i doubt quitting mac market (5%) really hurt them that much.Starting today, Adobe should announce that as of a future date — let’s call this April 1st, 2012 or 2013, ... that support for all of their Macintosh applications will cease.
As of today, Adobe should announce that it will complete development on Mac versions of products in progress, but after they are released, they will no longer develop anything more for Mac or for Apple device platforms.
To be nice to their loyal customers, they should offer competitive cross-license upgrades and transfers to Windows, and possibly consider Linux a strategic next-generation platform for content creation as well.
