    I'm sure you won't get as excited about this as us on the developer side, but still wanted to share this with all you apple fan boys <3

    p.s. What it boils down to is not only an ability to play latest and future PC and console games in a browser but opens a door to simulators, VR, etc. pretty much anything that required a dedicated rig before. Although there have been some attempts in the past as well as limited 3d engines available, this is a full fledged integration blueprint made by epic games that others will soon follow. All made possible with new hardware acceleration options in Flash 11. So much for html greater then or equal to flash... See you on the other side :)

    HTML5 = DOA as Steve Jobs would say. Wasn't HTML5 supposed to rule the web by now? lol

    Playing any game that uses the Unreal Engine with flash would be like playing an interactive slideshow on a Mac.

    Hum... This is basically WebGL or Java3D done by Adobe. JIT compilation means that you'll load a while longer but the code will run as fast as natively compiled would.

    And OP : why the inflammatory post ? This is a great achievement by Adobe with their Flash runtime, but it's not like it spells the death of HTML5 (which includes this same technology in the form of WebGL) or that "Apple fan boys" don't care about this stuff at all.
