It seems to me all the people who are for HTML5 don't actually understand how Flash works.

Imagine how much Photoshop dominates the market of photo editing and how pretty much anyone who edits photos uses Photoshop. Now imagine how foolish it would be to say that Photoshop is going to get kicked in the nuts by some other platform that is still in baby stages and that we don't even know much about or how it will work. As you should see by now, it's not a very smart comment to be making.
I will stick with my idea that when all the bigger companies will put effort in common to develop and improve HTML5 its potential will be very high. And -if- they decide to really push it, well simply forget about flash.
