I just have to add, "the rumors of Flash dying are overblown", is correct. Flash isn't dying, its already dead. Doesn't matter how good the runtime is, it's hardly used much anymore compared to what it used to be. Sorry, I don't mean to be snarky, but I just don't agree with the "Flash isn't dead" idea. Does it have to go away completely to be dead? No, but it's certainly lost 90% of its relevance on the WWW, and that to me, is "dead".

The Flash and AIR runtimes are still great at what they do. Apple pulled a stunt to shame Flash, but the truth is that they just wanted to protect their appstore. They didn't want to kill Flash. They wanted to kill Flash apps in the browser. They have succeeded, within their target market. Developers obeyed the dictators and moved to the appstore. The runtime remains great.
