Comment on "Implications of Adobe's Intel-Only Soundbooth"
by Samo — Oct 30
The thing with Adobe is that they are sitting still doing a Quark and crossing fingers everything will go well.

They have competition for their various technologies coming from Apple _and_ from Microsoft. It doesn't look like they want to use innovation to battle these "threats", though. They bought Macromedia and are trying to (ab)use Flash to strengthen their position.

With the current crop of APIs I don't think that developing a Photoshop competitor, for example, that does 80% of what PS is used for and does it better is _that_ hard anymore. Neither on Windows (Vista) nor on OS X. Would be fun if someone did to Photoshop what Adobe did to Quark XPress.
