also, in order to get the desired effect they would have to make a way to disable all adobe products on mac. even if they did that they would be facing law suits because the users paid for that program, and adobe cant take it away from them. the only thing they could do is withold cs6 from mac and 6 wont be out for a couple of years, and even then. it wouldn't force many people to go to pc because even now many people pc and mac alike don't update every year because the price is outrageous and there is never anything really amazing in each new version worth the price so every one would rather stick with their old version of their adobe programs. If they ended flash player for mac, which wouldn't be hard for them to do. adobe would be digging their hole bigger. that would give everyone a better reason to change to html, since mac users would be pissed and so would websites and companies because, they wouldn't be able to reach a giant group of users, causing the whole internet to convert to html5. Adobe has got work cut out for em. as i see it flash has maybe 5-10 years until its not used anymore. that is unless of course flash is made godlike fast and reliable which lets face it. adobe wouldn't do that. lets just hope this lights a fire under them to get working hard on making flash better.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

There's already a web browser in AppStore with flash support and it's free "Cloud Browse". It works both with video an audio pages

High end PC cost $1,000 a month later the same hardware will run you $800 (slight exaggeration but enthusiast like myself will understand how quick the prices drop on pc hardware) but that mid-high end mac that you bought for $3,000 still cost $3,000 and you can enjoy waiting months for upgraded hardware (which will then cost you even more).
Mac= Biggest waste of money in the world
Self build pc= Better than mac, cheaper than mac, real support all over the world (and pretty much any forums you use will have someone who could help you with computer problems) instead of the apple store technicians and if you spend 1 day figuring everything out you can install OS X on your freshly built pc.
Mac does run better on mac hardware though since its got the drivers all created for that hardware but with enough knowledge you can usually find everything you need to get OS X running on your PC as good as or better than an actual mac.
I have nothing against Mac itself just against mac hardware and Apple being so restrictive because Apple is filled with a bunch of *** holes who took an Operating system (linux) gave it a new name changed a few things then slapped a huge price tag on it and for those of you that don't know the whole point of Linux is freedom.

Anyways, I don't think flash will ever entirely disappear. Flash is just to powerful to get rid of. I have some friends that are in the motion graphics profession that work mostly with flash and they are on high demand in the area. As a web developer myself, I always make a mobile version of the web site that won't use flash for my clients. Really, why would you need flash on the idevice? But for desktop/laptops, I think flash is great.

how is owning a mac like owning a auto ferrari, and a custom built one a manual ferrari?! a mac is like a ferrari, and a custom built pc is like a 240sx. sure with enough customization you can be as fast as a ferriari, if not faster and for probably only 30% of the cost... and thats fine if thats what your into, but some people rather just buy a ferrari, they want something really built perfectly for its specific hardware, hardware that they'll never change. Have you opened a new mac pro? looked inside of it? its easily worth its price tag, maybe not part for part, but thats not what people are paying for.
thats why Operating system is your option from the start, apple has no direct problem with its users using windows.
But for my 2 cents for the thread, adobe shouldn't take this as a slap in the face, they need to improve their product, flash sucks on any mobile device i've played with that supports it,

Where would Apple be today without Adobe? Does anybody use Photoshop? Mac sales would be worse than they already are if it wasn't for applications developed by Adobe.
