Making the logo single color as opposed to multicolor does not make it any
more unique. Choose any color, I will come up with a list of 10+ companies
with logos in that color. Uniqueness is about a lot more than just color.
I've never looked at a Chrome logo and said: "Oh hey, look its a Microsoft
logo.", because the logo is _unique_ in its shape and execution.

I think that's ridiculous, the fact that there is a tinge of red in the
multicolor logo does not make it reminiscent of Adobe. It would be
reminiscent of Adobe if the entire logo was red and the accompanying text
was black and in the same font as Adobe. I very highly doubt anyone is
going to say: "Hey! Look at the new Flex logo! It has red, zomg, its an
Adobe logo!".
