  I don't believe that is a complete understanding.

  Not all of Adobe's Flash Platform money is coming from tooling. They 
have those premium features ( ) 
which have a weird licensing model w/ a percentage of revenue.  I assume 
that be the way forward how Adobe makes money; with Tools and the open 
screen project being secondary.

  Previously, I thought the bulk of the money Flash Player made--in the 
past--was via the ads in the installer.  [That stupid toolbar checkbox 
everyone forgets to unclick when installing or updating Flash Player] [I 
don't know numbers, but I've been told it was an obscene amount].  That 
revenue is going away as Flash Player moves to "silent updates".
