It sure seems to me like Adobe has a vendetta against Linux.

What gets me the most, is they're not even developing their developer tools for Linux. A sizable portion of programmers use Linux, and they don't push their dev tools to Linux. For the past decade or so, nearly as many developers use Linux as they do MacOS (and for majority of that time, Linux was ahead of MacOS by a good margin). Its like, "Hey, I'm a developer, I want to give you my money, why won't you take it? Lots of my friends do too."
