Subject Re: will ever adobe give the flashplayer to the opensource comunity
Date Fri, 03 Feb 2012 13:54:56 GMT
I don't thing adobe will ever release flash open, I hope it will and I hope
the runtime will be integrated as a part of any browser.
IMHO, the most we can expect is this community to have more energy than
others in asking adobe new features, bugfixes and change some internal vm
behaviors, but this would happen only if the work done here on flex will
result in a good job for adobe and (and most important) if adobe will get
some profit out of it.
my 2 cents,
