Flash mega bloatware???

Posted on December 08 2005 by Steve in reponse to flash is bloatware

Dough-headed monkeys,

Flash is a sensible platform for distributing fairly thin multimedia content. I really do appreciate your sentiment though, the more dough-heads we have in the industry the easier it is to make things work well AND look good (repeatedly), as the crap settles at the bottom and gets less business. And while your post may be applied to well over half of the general Flash development community, it should by no means be considered a conclusive judgement about a tool. Judge the tool, and it's good uses, not the people (who generally suck) who misuse it (and subsequently EVERY other tool at their disposal - just as you have misused the browser form you used to post your message, and the browser that underlies it, and the server that processed it).

If you want to talk about mega bloatware you might want to be armed with a little information, which you might someday transform into knowledge -- when you have some actual experience to show what is reflected by reality.
