well said incrediBILL.
Being intellectually challenged myself, I wonder what will happen to all the interactive demos, e-learning, stuff which uses video as a component only (and not as a 'player' to watch a puppy skateboard) if Flash is now dumped? There's a lot in B2B which relies on Flash.
I also feel that you can't 'draw and design' with code. Now that it entirely from my perspective as a non-coder (I have seen some code artists in my time), but as someone who visualises in terms of graphics, scenes etc. I really don't want to 'code' to achieve the same effect.
It's a shame that HTML5 can't in some ways deliver 'content' regardless of it's origination. In this way you could deliver Flash or whatever you wanted to author in and have it delivered via HTML5 - but that's just me demonstrating once again 'I'm not a coder'!
I think that it's a shame that the whole driver of this seems to be a market which wants to watch YouTube and 'videos' on mobile devices. Seems to be the ultimate in tail wagging the dog...
