Internet Explorer This is interesting news. According to WinUnleaked.tk, and given credence by Rafael Rivera and Paul Thurrot, Adobe has given Microsoft the source code to Flash, so that Microsoft could fully integrate it into Internet Explorer 10 for Windows 8. Interesting move, and probably not a bad one considering just how popular Flash still is, especially for games.

Because they sell tools such as Adobe Flash Creator, if they open sourced it they would have incompatible forks and any content made with Flash Creator wouldn't work correctly.

This would most likely piss off many of their existing customers.
