sorry for starting a flame war. i just meant, that if flash really dies
(what is the purpose of the media), flex also. recreating it in javascript
is not an option.
i meant we need to show, that there is place for both flash and html5. the
two things is completely different. html5 has a canvas tag. so what? flash
has a webview component.
but if the people hear every day that flash is dead, they won't pay for a
flash ria, even if it would be faster, better, cheaper.  please don't take
it as an offense, i'm not fighting, it was my toughs. I'm young, so i can
be wrong :)
