Adobe to Jobs: ‘What the Flash do you know?’
Flash never ships with bugs we know about
Adobe has fired back at Steve Jobs after the Apple boss allegedly attacked Adobe Flash for being “buggy” and referred to the Flashmakers as “lazy.”
“I can tell you that we don’t ship Flash with any known crash bugs,” Adobe CTO Kevin Lynch wrote today in a back-and-forth with commenters on an Adobe corporate blog, “and if there was such a widespread problem historically Flash could not have achieved its wide use today.”
We weren’t aware that only non-buggy products achieved widespread use. But there you have it.
According to Wired, at an Apple “town hall” meeting after the introduction of the Flashless iPad, Steve Jobs unloaded on Google, calling the search giant’s “don’t be evil” motto “bullshit,” before rounding on Adobe.
“They are lazy. They have all this potential to do interesting things, but they just refuse to do it,” he said. “Apple does not support Flash because it is so buggy… Whenever a Mac crashes more often than not it’s because of Flash. No one will be using Flash…The world is moving to HTML5.”
