Give it up, Steve. You're using logic and reason, and the True Believers
aren't swayed by those. In fact, references to "cost" and "margins" are
downright offensive to the Keepers of the Dogma. Hang the cost -- Adobe
shouldn't "betray the faith"! 

I expect that the more extreme fundamentalist Apple-ists will threaten
to behead you any time now for your apostasy. You're the Salman Rushdie
of the Macintosh! ;-)
