Portions of that statement have been used by many Apple advocates as 
"confirming" that Microsoft feels the same about Flash as Steve Jobs does.

But the headline of that article, "Microsoft on Flash: What Steve Said", 
doesn't tell the whole story.

It seems Microsoft is playing it down the middle, a useful strategic 
position for them, as evidenced by the portion of their statement that 
doesn't get as much airplay in Mac advocacy venues:

    Despite these issues, Flash remains an important part of
    delivering a good consumer experience on today’s Web.
