Just another bad, bad decision. After defending Flash Player on mobile for 2+ years, Adobe sticks a knife in my back. Over it.

- I don't know what I have heard is true or not but the big news is also that Adobe is going away from amxmlc compiler which is used in AIR runtime.. even if rumor comes to life in 2 years from now it makes sense to introspect if it is worth spending time and effort on it.
That being said , I am flex developer for a year and half now and I have been to MAX this year to understand all about flex for mobile.. I still hope that Adobe won't abandon AIR ( since they have to ship separately for ios devices and we have still performance issues with it )but oh well, have to really think hard whether I want to stick with it.Nov 9, 2011
- Got a source for that rumor? It's a new one for me.Nov 9, 2011
- well one of my friend mentioned it to me saying it is a gray market news....that's why I said it's a rumor....but since he mentioned specific about AIR compiler, I kind of want to get in touch with him sometimes today if he has any further details on itNov 9, 2011
- Wow man, that's very adult of you. I'd expect you to be a lot more pissed.Nov 9, 2011
- Are they going to give security patches for the time-being? Failing that, are they going to allow people to keep the flash they already have active for a while. I'm sure everybody is going to revert to HTML5 or AIR etc, but until then it would be nice to be able to access the things that aren't on my phone.Nov 10, 2011
- That's excellent, I feel a lot better now, thanks :)Nov 10, 2011
