As I know companies like Sun give their employees a do-what-you-like time since ages. I.e. as i know Project Darkstar (now discontinued after oracle merger) is a child of this policy. so i do not really know what this video is new about... anyway this was mentioned before :)... anyway nice video...
Apple's way of saying that they do not want to support flash & co is just not tolerable. Instead of flaming Flash they just should say the truth: they want to protect the iphone experience and they want to control the app market. I could live with such a statement because I know Apple is a commercial enterprise...
if i were adobe i would threaten apple with stopping the development of the creative suite for their devices. apple harms the image of adobe in such a blatant way that apple can't be seen as a reliable neutral business partner anymore.
>>One will still need Adobe products to design, write and
>>release Flash content on the web. A blatant attempt to
>>force their software on an entire industry.
wrong... as i said there is adobe flex. it is more comfortable with the adobe suit but you can develop flash for free.
"...and yet, Apple STILL has to wait for Adobe to support new Apple features when Apple releases a new product. Adobe is ALWAYS a year or more late to do this IF they ever do at all."
they don't have to. of they do not want to wait they could implement their own flash player or helping the open swf player gnash to evolve. i think it is only a question of time when adobe releases the flash player code. project tamarin is only the beginning http://www.mozilla.org/projects/tamarin/.
apple tries to limit others and at the same time they claim flash would be proprietary, restricting and evil. with the opensource technology "adobe flex" which runs on flash players you can develop flash stuff with anything you want. http://www.adobe.com/products/flex/
when you want to develop iphone apps you have to use xcode and a mac. flash development on the other hand is free. just use FlashDevelop and the FlexSDK for example. Other Flash generators like swish etc. are on the market for ages.
