    Examples - can you see Mathletics rewriting their entire site in Ajax and HTML5? I can't... What about all the VLE flash based packages. The companies don't have the funds to redevelop everything. Just look at how long it took for companies to stop using 16bit code!!
    dosesnt sims STILL use 16 bit modules?

    There are several ways to look at it. The development costs of HTML5, but also lets say for example HTML5 was more efficient than Flash, Google could save a lot of money on bandwidth and/or hosting with regards to youtube.

    If you run a browser on a terminal server you'll know what I mean - (badly written) flash is very resource intensive.

    I want an ipad. I'll probably mod it to have a fixed hardware keyboard - ideally one that is perpendicular to the screen with a hinged mechanism so that it can protect the screen by closing it like a book when not in use. I'll probably install linux on it as well


    Yeh flash on my Citrix boxes is such a pain constant CPU spikes.


    As for the iPAD why not just wait for one of the imminent PC copies and put Linux on that you probably save money.
