A ‘platform evangelist’ at Adobe has lashed out at Apple over its new terms of service that make creating applications on a non-approved programming language a violation.

In his blog, Lee Brimelow states that his issue is not purely to do with Flash, but is a stand against what he calls the establishment of “tyrannical control over developers and more importantly, wanting to use developers as pawns in their crusade against Adobe.”

“The fact that Apple would make such a hostile and despicable move like this clearly shows the difference between our two companies,” wrote Brimelow. “All we want is to provide creative professionals an avenue to deploy their work to as many devices as possible. We are not looking to kill anything or anyone.”

Before disabling the comments for his blog entry, Brimelow added “Go screw yourself Apple.”
