Rishi Tandon,

Seems to me, from your signature, that you have an invested interest in Flex 
continuing. I would say that makes it difficult for you to see the "difference 
between a reality and our own perception", as you so aptly put it.

The least Adobe could do, after kicking Flex out to go live with the neighbor 
is be honest with their customers and say, "We recommend that you stop 
developing in Flex because targeting web applications for the Flashplayer is a 
dead-end endeavor. We recommend that you begin any new projects (not already in 
progress) in HTML5 or another technology." Instead, being embarrassed at 
pulling the rug out from under their developer base, they feed them the lie 
that they're going to be there for the Flex developers in the long haul. Anyone 
with reading comprehension knows such a declaration, in light of other 
statements from Adobe, is a request that we practice cognitive dissonance 

Flee maya, Rishi.
