Sorry, you're correct...Flex specifically and the Flash Platform as a whole, were hemorrhaging
money...with no end in sight.

I can't help comment on that - the same November press release that announced restructuring
and 750 people laid off celebrated their "record revenue quarter". Adobe as a company is not
hemorrhaging money, but particularly the Flex side of the Flash Platform did not fit into
their new strategy.
