Lots of hatred out there for Flash. What a sad day. Kiss that tool in my belt goodbye. F!@#$&%$ software engineers and their BS.

Some are saying Flash threaten's Apple's monopoly in the app arena.

I have my own share of hatred for Flash.
On a daily basis My mac says "unresponsive script, would you like to stop the script?" while it grinds away taking up all the processing power trying to get over the speedbump of giving me a half-assed animated banner ad.

Adobe Edge may be the next stage but the beta LOOKS very limited compared to Flash
