I think that it is difficult to disagree with Jobs on this one.

Ask Linux end users what is the most frustrating app and they will most likely point to Flash: Slowing down the computer, crashing the browser, showing choppy video.

What I find quite interesting is that now vendors start arguing to see which one is the most "open" and have strategies to participate in Open source.

I don't think that we are at the "then we win" stage, but I wouldn't have expected to hear arguments like this from closed minded companies just a few years back.
