Open Source? Adobe's immensely bloated (and expensive) software is far from any open-source philosophy.
I liked my Macromedia stuff muuuuuuuuch better before they were gobbled up by Adobe.

Other than the Flex SDK ( the flex compiler ) being released under the Mozilla Public License, how has Adobe been committed to open source?

Yes, definitely April fools! :)

No April fools joke boys. Both the Linux foundation and Adobe released the news at March 31. in a press release which is available on their sites and these press releases haven't been revoked since. According to the above comments, not everyone took the time to read the announcement to determine the scope of the agreement. It is about the development suite of programs, not the end user utilities.
Adobe joining the linux foundation has nothing to do with open source. The Linux license allowes closed source applications to be run on top of it.
According to the press releases Adobe will now make development tools actively available to the Linux operating system. The goal is not to make Adobe applications open source, but the make the Linux platform more acceptable as a development platform for web applications with proven technology. Adobe is not distributing their source, they are just diversifying.
