If Adobe was able to actually make Flash ubiquitous and platform independent, it wouldn't suck so bad and would actually be used for much more useful stuff. If you look at Java, even as much as Sun screwed the pooch with it, they got it onto dang near any and every platform and it worked pretty much the same on every one. Flash on Windows works alright, on Linux it lags way behind (64 bit version in beta for how many years now???). Mac version buggy and crash prone, no availability on mobile devices. Doesn't really sound like a standard at all. Sounds like a 'feature' just waiting to be replaced by the thing that actually works.

One can't proceed from the informal to the formal by formal means.

Working...
