Subject Re: Flash Player premium features

Hi Giorgio,

I honestly don't really care about it. As a web developer I am not 
getting Flash projects
anyways due to last years marketing and because agencies like buzz 
words. As a app developer
I do not care of this particular feature as I will not be affected 
(rarely a app really needs the
fast memory and stage 3d. As a game developer I am/will not be 
successful enough that this
will affect me, and even if it would: Its software I use. If I earn more 
than 50k for a app (after taxes)
I guess I wouldn't be greedy, after all I can accept that some of the
success is based on the Flash platform and I have no problem to reward 
them for that (if I use
Unity then I haven't paid a cent for other Adobe products).

Anyways: the way how it went down is ugly. Specially that they 
deprecated the old avm calls.
Its one thing if you deprecate something that makes problems but 
something that is actually
used and useful is uhm:  why??   It just annoys people. Makes me wonder 
if they really value bad
marketing that much...

So: yeah marketing suicide continues... but who really cares: People 
that have no way around .swf
will use it like before (my policy is for 6years already: use flash only 
if there is no html option).
