One issue that concerns me is that Adobe seems to be betting the farm  
on Web 2.0 while reducing the importance of print based and other  
forms of output media. Perhaps that has something to do with  
Narayen's failed attempt at Pictra. He feels he needs to succeed in  
that area, to prove his machismo or what ever.

"don't leave any customer behind" reminds me of the US "don't leave  
any child behind" education system. Umm, but what does that actually  
mean, anyway?
