This is, as far as I see it, not a purely "religious" perspective that
applies here. But that's not even my point here, I'm sure there are
others who will elaborate.

Oh sure. as fast as Flash for amd64 on Linux ? I won't hold my breath.

- From my experience, one can survive the Internet quite well without
flash. Most of the time, it is either advertisement or flashy (pun
intended) pictures distracting from the lack of real information on a
page. (I apologize in advance should you as a flash programmer feel
offended here...) Flash may be nice to have, but imho not crucial,
especially on a mobile device.
