Adobe dropping Flash?

Hey all,

So I was in a meeting today and two high-level attendees said that Adobe is dropping Flash.  Is there any truth to this?

Why should they? I don't think so. Flash is base of so many applications, can't just be "dropped"...
What means "high-level", the level in management or what?

I don't think so, they may be referencing the old news of Adobe dropping flash for windows CE and Mobile.  They are also dropping support for older architectures, but that isn't anything new.

About Adobe dropping older architectures like PowerPC G3 Macs

Oh, and also possibly for Linux too,

At least this one is relatively new...

I too think they will certainly not drop flex in the next time.,one of the major improovments of cs5 was the flex development workflow. Why should they do that and drop it one year later?

All,

Thank you!

Sooooo sorry for the low points, I meant to put it at 500...so I had to spread the love a measly 50 points.

Sorry again for the low points, I will double-check it next time.

THANK YOU for all your responses!  I too thought much of the same as your posts, but when that came up in the meeting, my focus was gone for the rest of the meeting thinking about this subject.

I'm pretty sure they got wrong info, but I did ask them to produce data to back-up their statements.  If I get a response, I will post it here.

Best regards.

Don't worry about the points. But please DO remember to circle back here and let us know the source of the rumour if you find anything out.

Cheers,

Tom

I found out what they were talking about...it's Adobe Edge.  It seems that Adobe Edge is more of a GUI for the web technologies like HTML5, jQuery, CSS, and such.

They may have seen the first 10 seconds of a video and ran with their own idea.

It would be easy for someone who doesn't understand the true power of Flash to think that Edge is a replacement for it. That is, if you are of the mind set that Flash is just for cute [unnecessary] animations, this tutorial would (wrongly) make you think Adobe has replaced Flash.
