Adobe and Microsoft Buddy Up on Patches

Adobe and Microsoft haven't always gotten along. Redmond tried to displace the PDF format with its own Metro and aimed Silverlight against Flash and Shockwave.

Now Adobe's bigger enemy is Apple, who claims Flash is too fat for mobile devices.

I'm not sure if this brought Adobe and Redmond closer, but either way the two companies are working on a plan to deliver Adobe patches through the Microsoft Patch Tuesday process.

This is a big deal for two reasons -- Adobe software is relatively ubiquitous, and it also needs quite a bit of patching. Would you like to see third-party patches rolled into Patch Tuesday? Yays and nays welcome at [email protected]
