~crap~


You sound like someone who doesn't like or understand learning new things. There are objectively better ways of doing things now than there were 10 years ago, and to suggest that we should stick with something just because a lot of man hours have been put into it is idiotic. Just like why houses aren't built out of brick and mortar any more, there are cheaper, more efficient ways of doing things now.

There are also plenty of reasons to not want to run Flash...

Lack of Flash Gives MacBook Air Two Extra Hours of Battery Life
Flash Player : Security Vulnerabilities

If we built buildings the same way we build software the first woodpecker to come along would destroy civilization.
-- Gerald Weinberg


This is also ridiculous. We have woodpeckers and worse in the software world. We have people actively trying to compromise systems and while it causes problems for some, it's hardly catastrophic to the industry as a whole.

"How about PHP?"

"It's awful. Community sucks. Toss it."

"Flash?"

"Crap. Bloated. Everybody hates it."

"Why?"

"Because it works."

"What about basic HTML?"

"HTML5 is better."

"So the right answer is to throw out 100,000 man-years worth of working technology in favor of this new thing? What happens when HTML5 is widely used?"

"We'll toss it and start over. Just like we've been doing since 1961. What, you think everything being broken all the time is by accident?"
