Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Office applications + OS were pretty comprehensive - and making money outside of the MS ecosystem was pretty difficult. If you don't like Apple you can make your money elsewhere. If Flash is so important, buy a phone or tablet that has it: there are lots.  Well, there aren't, but that's because Apple's argument about flash is clearly wrong. Don't like their developer rules? Develop for other platforms - again, lots of space out there.

MS nearly became a complete monoculture, with the odd weirdo and university holding out on free unices or Macs. I don't see that with Apple, not for quite  a long time, and I live in a world of their devices. The two situations don't look equivalent from here.

Apple are a big corporation. They're not nice. Neither are any of their competitors. You don't like it? Stop supporting them.
