Java? Not that bad, but the VM isn't as lightweight as the flash runtime
engine (believe it or not). Not only that, it takes better developers
than the ones that do flash (no, you can't point, click and drop little
animations where you like or out of the box effects).
can't do (easily) is video and audio, but then again that can be hacked
using the right tools and setup in Java (maybe with a bit of native, or
C/C++ code) to do what you need to do at lower levels.
for nowadays, with a little proper HTML coding. Flash is just a fad that
developers use to deploy quick projects (similar to VB was back in the
day for Windows users).
That's a good thought though.. I like that idea..
