No Kent Walker. The lawsuit is NOT flawed. What is FLAWED is Googles disgusting and illegal marketing tactics!
DOJ is late to the party. They should have done this long ago! At least they are acting now!
I don’t remember a day that I didn’t work on an Adobe product. Almost daily I work with Adobe InCopy, Adobe InDesign, and Adobe Illustrator. Weekly, I work with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Adobe Audition, Adobe XD and Adobe Character Animator. And Premiere, After Effects, Audition, Animator is almost daily.
I’m working on creating multiple How-To sheets, a How-To mini handbook, and a programming book. All in Adobe InCopy and Adobe InDesign. Yes, it has spell checking. I’m mean…come on. I had to spellcheck in 3rd grade many decades ago. Grammar + Spelling! Grammar + Spelling + A.I = Success!
I was born with SEVERE dyslexia. I write from left to right and completely backward. My name, David. I write it divaD. And looking at it looks completely normal. Until I’m called out on it. Think about how difficult it is to write a book. I’m extremely creative. I explain things in detail that people can easily understand. But…getting those thoughts and explanations on paper is quite difficult.
That’s where the Power of Three Shall Set My Free comes in. Adobe InCopy + Adobe InDesign + Grammarly. The perfect symbiotic relationship. The API on Grammarly is there. Adding Grammarly to InCopy and InDesign would be amazing. I wouldn’t have to go to Grammarly, type my story, copy it into Adobe InCopy. Reformat the entire thing. Then InDesign to arrange it all. I could type right inside InCopy and make sure the formatting and even the design incorrect. Cutting out one large time-consuming step!

As most who know me know that I’m not a fan of Microsoft. Especially, when Microsoft purchased GitHub. My own view and opnion is that a for-profit corporation should not be in control of the largest repositories of open-source software. Especially, a for-profit software company as large as Microsoft who creates operating systems. That’s why I try not to use GitHub and use Fossil-SCM.
However, my opinion of Microsoft has went up a bit after reading this. I have to wonder if Microsoft wasn’t as far behind as they are with regards to smartphone and their own app store if they would be doing this. But, I have to put that to the side and appreciate that they are doing this. Hopefully this will pressure Apple, Google and anyone in the future that you can’t be a dictator. Shame on your Google and Apple!
Per The Verge article linked below Microsoft will allow developers to use their own payment gateway and allow other software sources to be used. Thank you MICROSOFT!
