DS, you need to separate your expectations and observations. Whatever may be the capabilities or future hopes, as of now nothing sounds there is a room for Flash. Also it is hard to make it comeback when it was very easy to loose.

The most important thing any Flasher need to consider is Adobe’s statement about dropping mobile web aspect of Flash. I think it was announced 6 months back – I couldn’t digest still after that few guys have hope on this.

So do not expect world will change itself for our favor, just learn something new! ;)

Its not 2001 anymore but all i can see around there are people breaking their heads with js to do what have been done with flash since 2001.

Not supporting flash, thought, i’m pretty bored about this discussion. But sometimes the above kind of statements make me feel… flashy. :)

^ favoritism is everywhere, we can always see Apple and MS products trashed just because it doesn’t fits John Doe’s taste. At certain point, no matter how professional people are but manages to slip respecting customer needs and move on with personal taste.

Secondly web design is a mixture of different industries such as Graphic design, Programming and Motion Graphics and those who works for web doesn’t going to like all those 3. But the industry needs all those 3 to make it useful.

Most of the coders I came across thinks Flash as a fancy tool. It looks that way because that’s the way it was quite famous. Not their mistake but that’s the way internet culture progresses. Secondly it was a success for internet because it managed to dismiss Adobe from occupying unnecessary areas with poor responsibilities.

All the good credits goes to Macromedia for sure because Flash 8 itself is a gem for the next 15 years, regardless of we use it or not!
