Apple and Adobe made a deal (because they really have to get along, while competing): Adobe gets the pro video market in exchange for Apple killing Flash. Apple's part of the deal was to really flop in a big public way, to allow Adobe's (strangely touted and timely "CS5.5" intermediate upgrade) to grab all the customers.

really? this makes it sound like apple and adobe are brothers playing monopoly. apple throws adobe a bone so adobe doesn't get pissed off and quit the game. apple wouldn't have to give adobe the pro video market for killing flash. clearly apple's attitude is that they don't need to play nice with anyone, especially adobe. if adobe quit making mac versions of their software, first of all they would be losing a ton of revenue. second of all, apple would just make "iphoto pro" or something to replace photoshop and other crappy apps to replace the rest. i'm sure it would suck but they don't care. they have a flock of ipad toting sheep supporting them and steve jobs is the shepherd. they could serve up dog poop on a paper plate and call it prime rib. see fcpx for example.
