So not ALLOWING Flash, even when Adobe does all the work is being good? How about FORCING publishers to sell their content at a 30 percent loss on the App Store, that is being good?

How long has it taken for Adobe to publish Flash for Android? For ever. And it is sub-par, to say the least.

And Flash is still not on the Xoom yet.

And about the 30%, how much does a bookstore keep per sold book? It is about 50% (heard it on a recent show form Leo Laporte's TWiT.tv ) . Also an interesting read on publishing industry is http://www.fonerbooks.com/

With Apple, Amazon and now Google, authors are finally allowed to sell directly to their readers.

Back to Flash, I block Flash on both FFox and Chrome on my Linuxes. And Sure as hell I will not install it on my rooted nook color. So if I had an iThing, I would not want Flash on it.

Sure, most of Flash problems is due to awful Flash developers. But always bad developers go in hand with bad tools that allow small flash banners to max your CPU.

It is a hard day when on Slashdot someone praises Flash, a platform that has a history of being very unfriendly to *nix systems.

And don't make me call good'ole RMS on you, or he'll chase you all the way to your Starbucks with an EMACS manual while chanting "who needs Flash? Flash is not GNU/Free Software!".

Peace.
