What war are you talking about?
The one between Flash/Flex and HTML5, or between Adobe/Google and Apple. People are complaining Flex applications use a lot of memories and CPU powers on mobile devices. But I'm not so sure how good HTML5 is.
Can you do a digital Guitar like the one we saw on Google a few days back using Flex? I heard it was done with HTML5.
I was unaware there was a war between Flash and HTML5.
If you stop reading comments on news articles looking to increase advertising impressions and start talking to real people trying to do real work; you'll find there is no war going on.
Some people choose HTML and some chose Flash; but I have found many people are making these decisions based on business requirements.
Besides, HTML5 will be old news in a couple of years... Sure, HTML 5 can be rendered a bit faster (for now), but show me a Quake port to HMLT5, then I will be impressed. Until then, meh.
Adobe has a clear profit motive to continually develop their platform, whereas HTML5 is just a spec at the whims of browser adoption. It's not like the enterprise community can go complain to the "makers" of HTML5 when you need it to support some new feature to keep up with changing technology...
Just my 2 cents at least.
PS Adobe: Better get crackalakin on that Flex 4.5.1 update! jk much love!
Flash isn't dissappearing anytime fast. HTML 5 will continue to grow. Flash will continue to grow. Apple will continue to grow. Lots of techologies. Just choose the right one for the job.
It's not an "either/or" situation. Nobody is at war. You might as well ask if the invention of the paint roller will be the end of the paintbrush.
