Well, part of me doesn't blame Adobe for wanting to go this way. They pretty much created the entire genre, and have been more or less consistently innovative

Did they? What about graphics apps on Atari (and other now demised computer systems) compared with which Adobe's early Photoshop was pathetic.

Where DTP was concerned, Calamus on the Atari was well ahead of the rest in its day, but marketed extremely badly; Pagemaker was (still is, since it still runs on Windows 7) good but Adobe bought that off Aldus ready-made and already a success.

And as for Adobe's (bought in) Golive years ago -- well, fancy other html editors having to include a setting to strip out the rotten code it inserted. Though even that wasn't anywhere near as utterly rotten as their first version of Indesign (v.2 was at least usable though still unstable) which should never have been sold at all.
