Macromedia claims that their Flash plugin is installed on ~98% of all computers on the Internet, yet I am perpetually reading rants and raves against Flash and how it shouldn't be used, blahblahblah. Basically, my question is: do you have the Flash plugin installed, and what is your general opinion of Flash sites/games/applications? IMHO, Flash is quite powerful and useful for complex interfaces, games and applications, however I dislike it when developers who use it merely create something simple, such as a small banner. I've also been looking recently at the new Macromedia FLEX which I would love to play around with for an application me and some others are soon to start developing. Unfortunately, it costs $12,000 for a dual-CPU license, which is slightly out of our current price range! :eek: sad%20%28frown%29.gif

I like Flash. I've just started figuring the thing out recently. I've made made a Trekky-esque website, and Flash is brilliant for that because you can make the buttons similar to how they are on the show, with animations and sounds etc. Right now it looks pretty dumb because I'm crap at it ( :D ). But I've seen some pretty beautiful Flash sites before now. Those advertisements really annoy me too, though.

I think Java will take off when it's open sourced.

Flash is a great tool.
