Free Flash community reacts to Adobe Open Screen Project

@ the scripts in the pages: It's funny, that I had to allow scripts on www.linux.com to be able to reply....

I agree about the flash. It's very possible to do quality pages absolutely without it, and from what I hear, in HTML 5.0 would be other means to transport multimedia (using Theora, IIRC).
Still, if this article lacked the conclusion in the end, I would think it's very biased. Surely, there is nothing insanely great about opening the format specification (to some extent), but it is a first step. If we slag and shun Adobe for doing it, they are never gonna continue. What we need to do is encourage them to continue. See, Java is being opensourced after how long?
