Subject Re: Petition: Flash Catalyst must survive

The only competition in the web space is HTML/Javascript, which
has practically no tooling whatsoever at this point in time (obviously
that's being worked on as we speak). The competition in the mobile space is
more varied, with native iOS and Android, as well as HTML/JS packaged up
(ie via PhoneGap). But JavaFX and Silverlight for web development are not
serious competitors. When was the last time you saw a company move away
from Flex to Silverlight or JavaFX? Or make a decision to start a new
project using Silverlight or JavaFX instead of Flex?

The only thing to worry about to keep Flex competitive as a (non-mobile)
web app development tool is HTML/JS. The mobile game is a lot harder, as
Adobe has made very clear :)
