I've been butting heads with jd from Adobe (mainly in Digg) for quite some
time. He really doesn't like us "freetards" (Dan Lyons steretypes), but he
also doesn't like it when people become vocal and speak against Adobe's
secretive and proprietary agenda. They are not as evil as Microsoft, but it's
Adobe will need to sidle with the pro-consumer side if they want to survive the
next decade. The Web isn't becoming proprietary although Microsoft and Adobe
try to make it so.
