Flash haters, rejoice! Microsoft releases tool to let you nuke Adobe's security horror before support ends

I guess Adobe bought Flash too early and with insufficient attention to give it the PageMaker treatment — throw out a few maintenance releases and work rapidly on the greenfield replacement. I don't really know how it's doing nowadays but InDesign was a very good thing twenty years ago. Quark certainly didn't see it coming.

Alas that is the only example I can think of in which Adobe didn't just cling on desperately to an existing codebase.
