Hmm. Based on that interview excerpt, Warnock was firmly _not_ in the designer/graphics artist/page layout camp. He was all about "highly structured" long documents and said he loved FM. Adobe is a large organization. It doesn't have just one understanding and one head. Are there lots of designer/artist types at Adobe? Sure. Do they have lots of sway? Sure, probably just about in proportion to the percentage of Adobe's revenue that their designer/artist-oriented software produces. Are there people at Adobe who understand what FM is for? Of course. Do they have lots of sway? Um, well, probably just about in proportion to the percentage of Adobe's revenue that FM produces. And that's the real issue, not lack of someone's understanding.
