Here’s how this whole circus started.

When the ipad got released I made a thread about that, but the thread eventually got hijacked and turned into a “apple/adobe/flash dying yes or no/ html5” etc. discussion. Now I didn’t want a thread about the ipad to go off topic like that so I made another thread called “is flash dying?” NOTICE THE QUESTION MARK ?

Well a bunch of people figured that I was implying that it was, so that topic got a little out of hand as well.

In general though, I visit AD for two reasons.

1) These forums are active, GR’s forums are a little too quiet.

2) The discussions interest me, but what interests me more is that arguments used here don’t really hold up all the time. Regardless of brand or product.

But if you look in a thread started by Chuckanucka (I forgot the thread name) then you can see that I’m actually all for flash staying, maybe somehow incorporated into canvas or maybe not. I don’t want flash to die.

The thing that makes flash such a hot topic is because it’s a very “responsible” technology. Unlike HTML where you can mess up very little, flash can be messed up very bad. And I guess that some people give flash a bad name and then there are other people who figure that if you can’t get rid of the bad devs, get rid of the technology. And if you are a good dev, that pisses you off, which is understandable.

As far as my opinion on apple goes. I don’t know what the hell they are up to. I just like the OS and I like my macbook. And no, I don’t own a boatload of apple stuff. One mbp and one ipod from way back.

On a final note, don’t underestimate HTML5 and what it should be able to do. The problem with HTML5 is that it’s basically a freaking prototype and imo shouldn’t be used commercially now.

No problem with that. I guess I’ll just look forward to its development and release then. :)

Well it’s not like it’s software. You can use HTML5 if you want to already.
