Subject Re: will ever adobe give the flashplayer to the opensource comunity
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 12:01:09 GMT
the same is about all java ecosystem and .net ecosystem. I can not see
the difference. There is no serious alternative to Oracle Java and his
alternative OpenJDK (I know there is IBM but who uses is apart from
taking it as bonus to other software from IBM). So what's the noise
about that. I am sure that there will be (in my opinion in about 2
years) production ready translation from flex to HTML (5?), maybe
using the external libraries like extJS maybe some brand new
components. The challenges will be in debugging such thing but that's
another story. Personally I thing that one company controlling the
player is good thing. This is multimilion investment and no free (no
income) teams can build / maintain alternative to such big apis /
