Subject Re: Petition: Flash Catalyst must survive
Date Tue, 10 Jan 2012 17:15:57 GMT
Fc was a failure from the begining. It never had momentum because never was
integrated with the Fb main enviroment. It's a pitty, but when Adobe
announced the dead of Fc few people complain since it was not the right
way. The Fc fail resembles the fail of Macromedia Brady the first Flex
Builder based on Dreamweaver. It was clear that the product not had any
sense at all but it was developed. Fc was the same history and here Adobe
was not listening to the community so the product never was of real use...

For something like this to succed should be a real eclipse plugin to
integrate with Eclipse and Fb and although both were sell separately should
work seamless.

Bu this is another story and have no sense to talk much more about it.
