I have a Mac Pro and I ONLY RUN VISTA on it. I do not have a problem running Flash only when I go and use Leopard.
I hope Adobe cancels all support to OSX.

you just wait... adobe is gonna make flash for android and then what? apple is gonna fail misirably and then apple will want flash on the iphone, but guess what, adobe will say no because the ignorant idiots at apple said no the first time. Just like verizon said no to apple for having the iphone with their carrier. Now verizon is not doing so well compared to att and the iphone, now they are in equal competition.

Plus Apple will be far from hurt if Android got flash. It has been almost 4 years of iPhone without flash and it is still very strong.

B-b-b-b-b-b-b-b-ULLSHIT! There are apps from Adobe in appstore, lol.

Well seeing as Adobe has no professional competitor to Photoshop (or do they?), perhaps they should stop making Photoshop for Mac?
That would force people that use PS everyday to switch to Windows

Flash is proprietary, devs need to buy Adobe Flash making software and it's a requirement to write code/apps, using only Flash software, and that's just fine in Adobes eyes.
Apple iPhone SDK is free to dev members and Apple requires all apps are written using their software, and Adobes thinks that's just evil? Huh? Double standards.
Adobe's bluff has been called, their backs are to the wall and their reaction or overreaction implies they are scared of becoming obsolete, so they kick the one who's calling for open web standards. Are they going to sue Google too I wonder?? They're pushing to end Adobes strangle hold on closed web standards also.
Well, regardless of what the supporters of either party think, the real proof will be in the eating. If Adobe are wrong, they will fail (open standards will then kill flash). If Apple are wrong, then they will fail (iPhone sales will fall as Flash fanboys change sides). Stand back and the truth will be revealed people. It's the line in the sand we all hoped someone would cross, and let the blood run free.
I for one will not shed one tear for the garbage web plugin all pimply faced, one handed joystick riders adore as a god. Don't need it, don't care, and good riddance to bad rubbish, and that is just what it is. Get over it !! I look forward to waving you fanboys a goodbye, as you leave this and all other Apple forums.

All i will add is that this ends up being pretty much all Adobes own fault
If they had gone to the bother of fixing flash on OSX so it wasn't such a CPU/Memory hog / crashing piece of junk, then perhaps the Almighty Steve might have taken a different view.
Flash on OSX is trash , had they spent the time fixing it, we might have seen a different outcome
Im sorry,Adobe have been lazy, they have had enough time to fix flash and convince Steve that it was worth a go....

Open your tiny brain and read straight from a web devs own mouth.
16 month-old bug continues to crash Flash - The Unofficial Apple Weblog (TUAW)
BTW, why buy an expensive laptop only to put the dudest OS Microsoft produced this decade, on it?
That's like owning a Ferrari and letting Paris Hilton ride in it. WHOA!!
(I bet you run "really cool" PC games on it, ay)

If my awesome laptop can't handle some Flash websites without getting choppy and becoming unresponsive at times, phones are years and miles away from accomplishing this.
Flash is an awesome method of creation, but it's out of control. By the time any cellphone/tablet can handle the full force of flash, HTML14 will blow Flash out of the water. I'd like to see iPhone with Flash, but i'm more than OK without it. I'm really disappointed that Adobe is abandoning the 'export to IPA' function. It could have been magical for people like me that can produce nice Flash work, but wouldn't know where to start with iPhone programming.

Funny thing is all these years people talked and harped on Gates and what evil M$ does through out the world and apple is just as bad if not worse. Fact is Flash runs on 90% of the worlds web sites, Apple needs flash if they didnt they would not have flash supported on there desktops and laptops. If I was Adobe soon as I filed the aintitrust suite I would stop supporting everything apple related and give rebates to switch to PC based products. Now take other tech companies that are going to jump on the bandwagon, going to be huge.
This is going to cost Apple a lot of money.

Clearly its Adobe crying for Apple to let them put Flash on iPhones, not the other way around.
04-22-2010, 12:19 PM #79
Apple is against Flash because of money. Not performance or instability. If people can create apps that doesn't need the app store, then Apple doesn't make any money on those apps. Pure and simple. I am neither a Apple hater or a Flash lover, but all anyone needs to do is look at the initial Bluetooth limitations on the iPhone. This allowed Apple to charge more money to accessory manufactures to license a proprietary connection.
Just my 2 bits..

does this mean Adobe is ditching flash for the macs aswell??
