PC Magazine asked Adobe CEO Bruce Chizen about open source, Microsoft, Macintosh, Adobe’s business strategy, etc. Adobe’s relationship with Apple — a significant matter for us — has been subject of some debate recently, mostly perhaps because Apple has released software that competes directly with some of Adobe’s. In emollient mood, Chizen says that between 22 and 25% of Adobe’s business comes from Macintosh customers, and points out that those already on the platform are very loyal. Further, he does not envisage Apple attacking markets (such as pro digital imaging) where Adobe is unrivalled. However he sees little sign of “switching”.
