Even around AVM1 time, Flash Player was mostly known for games, intro sites
and splash screens.  That dint prevent me or several others companies from
pushing Flash Player and build shipping enterprise applications.

I dont quite get the pessimism here.  I am in fact glad that Adobe stopped
working on Flex and is concentrating more on the Virtual Machine and AS
language enhancements.  Isnt that what we all wanted?
