Subject Re: will ever adobe give the flashplayer to the opensource comunity

Agreed, I do not believe we need Flash Player to be opened source to do
great stuff with Apache Flex, as I think you mentioned before Alex the cost
for Flex is now 0 since the community will be developing so even with the
Flash Player as it is we should be able to keep pushing Flex further than
Adobe did since there is no commercial agenda anymore. Adobe will probably
also improved the Flash Player as part of their own agenda and use, is
multi threading still on the map for this year?
