Adobe Flash – crap to rule them all

This isn’t about a monopoly. Flash has been a standard for years, just like the PDF has been. Flash is viewable everywhere, for free, on most platforms.

This quotation is from a comment on Adobe’s weblog. I’ve never read such a nonsense, but this it seems is the usual thinking nowadays. It’s neither a standardI nor viewable everywhere, furthermore it’s not free. You pay for it in terms of security-drawbacks, resources and instability. Last not least it isn’t free of barriers, it’s in contrast a real pest for handicapped persons. PDF is a similar story, barely free or usable everywhere.

  1. maybe vulgo for de facto standard

Don't be the product, buy the product!
