Well, maybe upper management didn't want them to change.

I mean, the suits thought it worked.

And, they apparently didn't pay attention to Jobs over 5 years ago.

As so many have fallen by the wayside.

Yeah, they have to do something here. People are just going around them.

@larryloeb,

Agreed, reason why I think it's a matter of time when they either seek and pursue a true solution to be able to integrate with today's ecosystem...or be part of the "once great companies" list :)

They have been stonewalling and patching so far.

Doesn't seem like they are doing a rewrite or anything.

@larryloed,

I don't think it'll be gone...Adobe will probably seek a way so that the different platforms can co-exist.

Yes, Flash is established and out there.

But should it be gone?

Re: HTML5
@jnskm,

Thank you for your comment. And I agree with your line of thought...because Flash has both been around longer and has wider adoptance you have a wider scope of implementation.

I don't doubt that flash will be a thing of the past, or evolve into something else, but for many areas Flash is very much alive (I can atest to this to the educational online programs that my son is exposed too which are all flash based)

Mobile apps have caused a shift, but many (if not all) when having an app go across multiple platform, the web version is usually flash based.

So it's just inertia and laziness?
