I'm a think Adobe feels a great disturbance in the Force, as if
millions of new users who would have automatically belonged to
them a few years ago suddenly noticed the GIMP, and a mighty
revenue stream disappeared forever.
I have come to see The Desktop Is Dead as more of a campaign
slogan in support of killing the desktop than a prediction or
observation about the market. Software As A Service guarantees
100% vendor lock-in and assures full vendor access to all users'
personal data, all the time: Handcuffs and total surveillance
guarantee more revenue, so if possible, the desktop must be
killed. I'm sure Adobe sees the logic in this, and of course
Google is leading the charge...
I don't think that will work out for them. Most users want at
least some control over their computers some of the time, and laws
of physics issues assure that tablets can not compete with
workstations on the application performance front. But then
again, I'm may be "too old to know anything" about computers and such.
