[filmscanners] Re: Couple of basic questions



MS typically gets involved in markets with broad demand - which is why
Windows XP Pro Home Edition simplifies scanning and printing of images if
you don't need (or want) to do much color correction (and yes the applets
are now color managed - I know some folks that work in the imaging division
of Microsoft).  Microsoft also communicates a fair amount with any developer
organization that has an app with significant market share on Wintel, so
Adobe is going to get pretty good treatment from them.

Right now, the market demand for higher end graphics functionality isn't
that big.  But as digital imaging goes upscale, I'd be surprised if some of
the sophisticated features of PS and similar products, didn't get migrated
into automated little wizardlets, putting pressure on Adobe to improve their
UI and their capabilities.

MS and Adobe are more friendly competitors (did I actually say that with
MS in the same sentence??) than anything else.  I think MS was happy
that Adobe eventually ported their software to the Windows platform,
which entrenched more use of WinTel machines for graphics and arts purposes.

As I understand it, Adobe and MS communicate a fair amount.  I don't
think that MS wants the responsibility of the pro end of graphic
software, they do so many other things "so well" as it is... ;-)
