Subject Re: Flex -> HTML, Linux and time to say goodbye?

Everything you have written in Flex to date, unless you specifically selected to compile the
RSL's into your code, could just stop working if somebody at adobe got their pants into a
twist and pulled the plug on the server.
Your apps would all stop working at once, or the next time your cache cleared. Worse, you
would not at that point be able to recompile to correct the problem.
