    The text rendering one is in part due to developer resources: https://github.com/harfbuzz/harfbuzz/issues/2394#issuecomment-626254448 Turns out text rendering is hard, and when both Apple and Microsoft are trying to move away from subpixel rendering (for a variety of difficulties, including the GPU-accelerated pipeline, and increasingly common different screen orientations), Adobe is trying to move away from Type1, and on top of that nobody wants to fund development, you don’t exactly swim against the current.
