Anyone who hasn't been living under a rock knows that the big players are abandoning Flash as a web video delivery format like rats from a sinking ship.

But we know that Flash is more than just web video.

So what does this mean for Flash (and therefore Flex) as an application platform?

The only big player that is trying to assasinate Flash, is Apple, but as you know Apple doesn't support Java as well.

Apart that, Google is embeding Flash into is Browser (Crhome) and even Firefox is doing the same.

On the mobile side Google Android 2.1 supports the entire version of the FlashPlayer 2.1.

It is an intresting war and yesterday Abobe advetise that they love apple!
