Subject Re: Adobe has announced the end-of-life of the Flash Player

I saw it some hours ago, and I must to say it seems very strange to me read
this movement. Let me explain:

Although the world has gone "anti-flash" and the technology has very bad
press to many people that doesn't know really about it, I must to say that
the last months I was very happy with the progress in our company making a
mobile version of our main product.

It took only one to two month make it work in Android and iOS Tablets, and
now we are making some visual changes via media queries to make tablets
more usable. We plan to release this versions after summer.

So this means a very productive and short time to make that versions since
all Apache Flex codebase is valid and we are only "tweaking" some things to
make web and tablets more usable.

I recently buy the new iPad Pro (10'5") and the performance of the Tablet
versions is Awesome. As performant as desktop versions. For us the minimum
version are Tablets from 2014-2015 period.

So, I don't know what you think, but for me it's awesome to see our product
perform greatly and be deployable at last in such environments and with
much less investment that if we go the rewrite route with FlexJS or other
technology. I think for new products created from scratch would be better
to make it in a newer tech, but for legacy, this way is clearly better.

So now in 2017, with phones and tablets with great power that can run flash
player (AIR) Apps, I think continue punishing a great tech is madness, and
making it go EOL is complexly absurd.

I know we can't make anything, since such corporate announcement can't go
backwards, so at least my worries are for:

a) Could go Flash Player the same route as Apache Flex? instead of EOL,
donate it? I think have it here inside Apache Flex would be a great
addition and we could control all the aspects of our project. If not we'll
end with Apache Flex 4.16 having the same sort.

b) I read that Adobe AIR will not be affected and as well Flash Player and
AS3 inside Adobe AIR, but honestly knowing the way Adobe makes things, I
think that's what the say know, but things could change (as they should do)
when they want.

What do you think?

Note: one thing aside and a lesson know for 2010 to present is: Avoid use
*ANYTHING* from Adobe, since you'll end with your investments in the bin.
So Golden Rule for me is: "Avoid all Adobe Products".
