If you guessed Adobe, you win a prize. Yes, the house that Steve razed – everybody’s 2nd favorite target of mocking for their sheer incompetence and duplicity – has transitioned into Apple’s latest version of its operating system with a grace reminiscent of a vintage Jim Carrey skit. The list of problem programs include: Acrobat, Adobe Drive, Contribute, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash Builder, Flash Catalyst, Flash Player, Illustrator, Lightroom, LiveCycle, Photoshop and Premiere Pro. So basically the entire company’s portfolio.
Mind you, Lion has been circulating in developer betas since February, so the only thing standing between you and perfectly-functioning versions of your Adobe bloatware is Adobe’s utter apathy. Seeing as they have yet to deliver a functional version of Flash to mobile devices, this should come as no surprise.
Thanks for continuing to make it easy to mock you, Shantanu.
