I just hope it happens soon! Everything in flex is so good and just because of flash player, it shouldn't be coming to it's end.
Just like how we currently have mobile app conversions from AIR to ipa, apk, I hope we can soon convert web apps to HTML5 on click of a button.
I just browsed through the apache flex community site as well. Good to know that gems like you and Peter Ent are part of that community I reckon it's in safe hands...
Flex is a great framework, it dont deserves to die, it allows to many developers (like me) create amazing software for the web. maybe its interface is a few heavy for some movil devices like said steve jobs but it is work great in other devices. of course that it is not perfect but its very powerful and easy to learn when compared with others frameworks, i think that any one interested in push forward the web must be ineterested in make flex better so all the web community will be benefited of it.
