And Apple declaring at a conference with Adobe's Warnock sitting behind them (joint presentation) that they were close to eliminating/replacing PostScript entirely with their own stuff. Warnock went white. He loved the Macintosh, found Windows execrable, and at huge personal $$opportunitycost had steadfastly refused to port PostScript to Windows. Apple was absolutely dominant in DTP, graphics, etc as a result, and those markets were booming hard.

And then they turned around and stuffed him. He who not only gave them that market, but was maintaining it for them.

Warnock ordered the immediate port to Windows when he got back to the office.

And Apple lost the one market it was making serious headway in vs Microsoft.
