Submission + - Dear Adobe: Support open source, save your tools (fortressofdoors.com)

lars_doucet writes: I'm a game developer that has been using Adobe tools (Flash in particular) for over 15 years. Though the Flash plugin definitely deserves it's reputation for slow performance, crashes, and security holes, there was something special about the Flash workflow and ecosystem: the plugin was installed everywhere, it gave you massive distribution, great animation tools, and it was easy to use.

Thanks chiefly to Adobe's neglect, clients and developers are losing confidence in the Flash platform.
However, Adobe can restore confidence if they:

  — Abandon empire-building
  — Embrace open-source standards like Haxe
  — Focus on their core competence: selling development tools
