Mark Zuckerberg also said very publicly that Facebook "burned" (his 
word) 2 years of development with HTML5, "We burned two years. That's 
really painful. Probably we will look back saying that is one of the 
*biggest mistakes* if not *the biggest strategic mistake* that we made." 
It was less of a "cave" and more of a fundamental shift in understanding 
(and a correct one).

This is where Adobe has an opportunity with AIR, that they seem intent 
on failing to capitalize on (at least in their marketing narratives, and 
the signals the decision makers are sending out into the market place - 
the Flash engineers are doing pretty cool stuff with stage3D and whatnot).

Anyway, Apache Flex doesn't need to wait for Adobe's higher-ups to 
figure it out - Flex can go HaXe, and have a multi-platform ubiquity 
story and an open source story to boot.
