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

And what exactly wrong with targeting the Flash player ?
Because it does work on Linux ?  Well use Chrome. Which is the best browser
anyway.
I dont really see what s the problem folk.

The first day We have a Flex->JS/HTML% compilation. is the first day Flex
dies.
Why would i then use Flex instead of GWT ?
We use Flex because it runs ontop of Flash and there nothing wrong with
that !!
You want to target HTML5 then choose something else. So simple is that
 IMHO.
