It is also available in Android, iOS and ChromeOS... which by the way is
about 3 times the usage share of
Windows + OS X.

They do not have any experience making software for Unix and the versions
they put out for Linux, Solaris, AIX, ...
were all lacking pretty seriously... it was never a contender for anything

OpenSource and other vendors did a much better job with readers for Linux
and Adobe did not want to be compared
to any of them.
