Comment Addition

Posted on July 12 2005 by Steve in reponse to Flash mega bloatware???

If your point was 'people should use more standards compliant methods and outputs when appropriate' then your comment would be well taken (and ENTIRELY true). Your posts scream of ignorance, inexperience, and a resistance to use the right tool for the right job. I put y'all in the same category as the Flash Freaks who use Flash for everything. It ISN'T right for what it isn't right for. But I won't try to build standards compliant interactive animation, synchronized audio and triggered thin video events with CSS and HTML. And don't say SVG, because none of those technologies (even Standards compliant stuff works different on different platforms). I get what I want everytime, the same on every machine for an interactive piece built in Flash. Right tools, right jobs...
