Hi

Here's a link to a good discussion on this i read recently..

There is lots of good of debate on whether flash is dead/restrictive/etc 
and html5 is the future..

Personally flash is just another media format and a very rich one in 
flexibility and you aren't necessarily restricted to adobe tools for 
construction.

There are lots of good open source projects out there and rev has 
positioned itself in a unique way by making sometimes obstruce language 
documentation freely available and with a bit of knowhow extract the 
cgi/engine component (3.5 & below) to use at no cost.

It would be nice if rev supported flash as a native object because 
interacting with it via quicktime or revbrowser is a bit of labour at 
the moment but certainly not a priority when rev is flexible in its own way.

regards
alex
