Microsoft Hot On HTML5+Canvas For Windows 8, Freezes Out Flash
What does this mean for Adobe? Well, the regular Windows 8 OS will run Flash in the web browser, so for the time being, it means nothing. However, if/when Metro-based tablets get popular (and cheap), we will probably see a huge move towards Metro being the OS of choice for “light” computing. This means there is an opening for Adobe to create a Flash-like tool for the HTML5 Canvas. As for Flash, it’s still a great tool and will always be one, but it’s days of complete dominance may be coming to an end.
