  1. All of this open source Flash is pretty cool, but makes me wonder if Adobe will endorse it and try to position Flash as a true platform and [almost] bigger than a company, or if they’ll pull the plug on this potential competition.

  2. I doubt that Adobe would do that.. They probably see that Sun has been struggling and will say that allowing Java to be open is a mistake that they won’t do with Flash.

    I think the OSS world will just keep picking away until there is something that is a viable alternative with enough features to keep people from buying Flash proper and Adobe will start to loose out.

    At some point I hope a nice Flash/Java integration takes place, but I am probably dreaming…
