BTW, Apple is also behind HTML5's development.

Most view the Adobe vs. Apple argument on a surface level. However, there is more than meets the eye.

Adobe just bought Omniture, a service for online marketing. Apple is getting deeply involved with advertising using their devices as their platform and the key acquisition of Quattro, an online ad company.

So the advertising equation now looks like this: Google vs Apple vs Adobe

Apple wants independence and so breaking away from Adobe makes a lot of sense.

Yes, with great interest. It amazed me that the online CS5 launch stated clearly that flash apps could be viewed and exported as if they could be used on an iPhone. This is clearly not the case but it is a brazen attempt to force Apple's hand I think. Get the design communities hopes up and let them hassle Apple.

Should be interesting to see the outcome.

sounds like another skirmish in the war of market share to me, it is interesting to watch though
