And now, the famous questions: Why not JQuery ? Why not Flash/Flex ? Why not Dojo ? Why not etc, etc... ? Easy answer: a choice had to be made. For more arguments, I propose to read two very interesting blogs:
- JQuery and/or ExtJS I like the neutral approach and arguments.
- And of course, the famous blog of Steve Job. I like the non neutral approach and some of the arguments. Of course Adobe has an answer. But about this answer, sorry, I can't believe the sentence "Create once and deploy on multiple devices". It's per definition wrong, other why would you have multiple devices if you would have always the same application ? Needs are different, users are differents, expectations are different... so applications will be different. It's a nice sentence, but it's not the reality. And if Adobe has 8 millions download of Flash per day, it's probably because users have always the wrong flash version installed....
