Well, that's cool. Candid, honest - Religious holy war. Silly.
Jobs has an ally in netbooks, though. They should be the real Flash killer. Back on Pandora, Poly said that netbooks did $11B last year. Pretty huge stealth figure. That stuff's not going away, as the web-thin-client is probably going to stomp terra. A lot of stuff has changed since the first thin client malarkey (and actually they're pretty big in big business), a myriad of technological evolution/revolution, consumer behavior, social patterns, etc, as well as the obvious stuff like the Cloud, virtually native virtualization, multi-processor supercomputing-parallel/grid computing, 48-core processors, cheap high speed broadband/100Mbps-1Gbps 4G, etc, etc.
And really, it's in line with the Jetson stuff everybody always thought this stuff should be like, and also the matriculation of data from the desktop to the Cloud is the way it should be, with tons of data available, accessible, mashable, rehashable into startling new stuff, etc, and really with better permanence than squirreled away and eventually orphaned on some desktop.
Plus it's cool and fun
But, the killer for Adobe is that even a dual-core Atom with Nvidia's Ion chokes on Flash. So, that's a gargantuan number of pissed people about their content and user experience. Then the sh!t starts rolling downhill from content providers, web producers, bloggers, etc, etc to developers, then developers abandon Flash in a flash . I don't know if they've connected the dots about this stuff yet, but when they do, Flash is dead unless they do some magical overhaul.
