But Microsoft was more conciliatory toward Adobe than Apple, saying it works closely with Flash engineers to help fix bugs that it find in the product.
Steve Jobs, by comparison, said in his open letter that it is time for the industry to move beyond Flash.

I'm not fully against flash, but I wish more would take advantage of Silverlight. I like silverlight. I want YouTube and flash games to run on silverlight and call them Silver games.
