Resizable Vector Graphics

Fluid interactivity and functionality

It Incorporates various senses (through visual and audio) in a seamless manner

The ability to create complex animations, interactions, and effects that
non-programmers can develop quicker and more effectively than some programmers

Bitterness from folks that fear change!

(just a few)

I'd like to see someone create a flash site in straight html using java or
whatever. Not much fun if you ask me, staring at lines of code.

Who doesn't make mistakes? The "philanthropist" overseeing html standards,

that's right Adobe doesn't make mistakes.

my 2 cents worth.

Take care flashers.
