The thing that worries me, is that there is no battle.

There is only Adobe doing the complete land rush / gold rush / "flash rush"
on it's own. And everbody[1] takes it for granted.  I think it is
stupid^Wshortsighted, at least naive, to put your own message on your
own website and next asking your audience to go the Adobe website to
fetch a reader to be able read your message. It is even more stupid
to continue with that strange habit after seeing several flash version
(each new flash version means that your audience must fetch a new flash
version from Adobe )

in other words: Adobe owns your content

Geert Stappers
[1] exceptions: Those who skip flash websites and the brave people who
are writing gnash.
